We got systems restored by about 0830z today.
Real story: Blew up an autotransformer at a switching yard
downconverting a 345kVa feed. Successfully lost 3 345kVa circuits.
Adverse effects in 4 counties and most of the University and surrounding
community was down for at least 3 hours. Slow restoration as the
utility folks brought smaller switching yards back on cautiously.
Campus had power by 0500z in some areas, and we started seeing some
systems back up ob 0700z after integrity checks on machines and disk arrays.
