Ouch. You don't have UPS and Generator backup? The server farm for the
County here has a 750KVA genset and a RFB (really freakin' big) UPS setup
for the IT Services server farm. Fresno State has multiple server farms and
each has a UPS and genset of the appropriate size. Heck, the Bulldog ARC
server farm/radio room/repeater shack has a feed off the UPS and genset.

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.
