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.
