Cell phones in the area are very congested, and people report difficulty
making phone calls in and out of the area. I have not heard if any phone
companies have imposed network management controls on voice traffic.
I have a Sprint PCS phone, all calls dialed left me with a fast busy
(when I could get carrier) until about about 30 minutes ago.
Now it rings but I get disconnected when the call tries to connect.
Land lines are still working fine, from my perspective. I just spoke
with my brother in Lacy, WA (about 15 miles from epicenter) in a different
area code, so that looks good.
I was also on the phone with someone in San Franciso during the event,
and the line stayed on.
Folks have reported in from the Westin Building, the main Internet hub
in the seattle area, that no substantional damage to the building.
We have circuits to UUNet, C&W and Zocalo. We did not see any outage
during the event, and packets are still flowing fine.
The freeways around here are another story though...
