Hurricane Wilma Caused Verio Bay Area Web Outages?

One of my favorite web sites went down this morning, and it was apparently caused by Hurricane Wilma. The domain for the site is hosted by Verio.

NOTE: Service to customers of Verio, Inc., located in Boca Raton, Florida was interrupted Monday morning (Oct. 24) when commercial power failed in Boca Raton and Verio's emergency backup generators failed to start. Verio is a major provider of web services to customers ranging from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses in the U.S. and four countries.

According to one report from Verio's Texas offices, after commercial power failed, Verio attempted to start the rooftop emergency generators but discovered the roof had collapsed.


Hurricane Wilma rips through Florida, 6 killed in Florida; 6,000,000 residents without power, phones.
