If there is anything we at One Wilshire can do to assist any network in
dealing with this, or recovering from the storm - let us know. We can
probably facilitate some emergency cross connections or if you are
connected to our IXP (Any2) nail up sessions for those carriers present
within One Wilshire within a few hours.

SCCN have carried out a temporary repair, and services are now restored
(ours are, in any case -- Two of our six unprotected STM-4's on SCCN were
affected by this, but they're now back)

There'll likely be some further outages down the track while the temporary
repair is made permanent. But at least the emergency has been mitigated.

Sounds like things are pretty bad at Portland, Oregon.  Repair took over
24 hours because flooding prevented the splicing crews from getting to
the worksite.  Ouch.
