WEATHER: Puerto Rico/Hurricane Georges

  • From: Sean Donelan
  • Date: Wed Sep 23 23:02:32 1998

37 dead.

I'll concentrate on Puerto Rico because DRA has some customers on
that island.  I'm not sure of the Internet or telecommunication
situation on other islands.

Official reports are light to moderate damage.  Electrical power has
been restored to some parts of Puerto Rico, but 1 million people are
still without power.  Primary power generation facilities were not
damaged, but the transmission network was damaged throughout the
island.

Telephone service was disrupted in several areas.  Mayaguez and other
areas are affected.  Internet circuits through those central offices
have also been affected.

The storm track is currently Cuba on Sep 24, and Florida late on
Sep 24 or early Sep 25.
