While weather in Southern California may affect your electricity, it has only a minor effect in the Long Beach area. Monday evening's storm was fairly mild with winds under 10 MPH and less than a half an inch of rain overnight. Not what I would consider a heavy storm. Rains do cause telco data problems. When I had dial-up, my maximum rate dropeed from about 45K to 37Kbps during and for a day or two following rain. Telephone service is beginning to be restored in the Long Beach area but is still sporadic. Around 2:20 or 2:30 a.m., I was awoken by my clock radio with three or more sets of soft buzzing noises--as though a radio station went silent. I checked my cordless phone and had dialtone, then went back to sleep. Is there any correlation? matthew black e-mail postmaster california state university, long beach
