Abovenet fibre cut

Has anyone heard of a fibre cut affecting Abovenet customers
(particularly those utilising MPLS), possibly centralised around
the east coast?

I've managed to confirm with the Abovenet NOC that there is a cut
which is likely the reason we're seeing increased latency between
California and Virginia, and Arizona and Virginia, but have no
other details about the problem, nor the location of the cut.
