Electric utility had a sub-station burn up. resulting in a medium-sized 
geographic area without power -- something like 17,000 residences according 
to news reports (no numbers on 'commercial' custeomrs provided).

AT&T has a facility in the affected area, and were also without utility power.

Rumor mill says that Sprint had a (moderately small) number of T-3 circuits 
affected, as well.
