At just after 7 PM CST, a major transformer in the EV1 data center parking lot exploded. At this time, it is still on fire.

We have implemented our emergency response plans.

Our backup generators are working as designed and a fuel truck has been dispached.

We are also bringing in 2 truck mounted generators as additional backup due to teh length of time we anticipate running on generator.

LIMITED staff is working in the building at this time as a precaution.

HOWEVER, our full management and administrative staff has been dispached to the facility.

Please bear with us if you have reboot or restore tickets pending, we will get to them as fast as possible given the limited in building staff.

Just to put the magnitude of this in perspective, we currently have 8 fire trucks, 6 vpolice cars, and two ambulances on our property and in the roadway ... this in addition to several news helicopters.

Thanks for your patience.

At this time, our network is functioning normally.

what do you think are the chances of getting some better photos? Smile it'd be good if someone could do a before and after, to show the damage
