Incident Discussion:

At 06:32, an initial outage condition occurred with a recovery at 06:45. At 07:08 a second outage condition had occurred with subsequent notification from emergency services and the power company that there had been an explosive incident in a high-voltage power vault situated nearby our facility. An 8 by 12 city block grid had lost power at this point.

At approximately 07:45 I arrived on scene, smoke was emitting from the power vault. All power had been cut to the building complex. I gained access to our suite and all systems were de-energized due to safety cut-offs.

At approximately 12:00, the power company was able to access the vault and conduct repairs and by 13:30, power had been restored to our facility. I performed a controlled re-energization of our systems and conducted a damage inventory. All external communications were cut and one piece of communications equipment beyond our network border was destroyed as a result of a beyond tollarance surge condition. No damage was found within our network.

Through some on-site contacts, it was understood that multiple street level communications cabinets had experienced surge-related damage, many in the immediate vicinity of our facility were destroyed. Our upstream provider arrived at 15:30 and begun replacement work on that equipment. At 17:30, the equipment had been replaced and communications was restored.

At 17:45 I contacted our upstream provider and requested the in-suite communications equipment that was destroyed to be replaced. They informed due to workload, that wouldn't be possible until Monday-Tuesday. I manually transitioned our network over to a secondary backup connection and shifted network services over on a temporary basis. This was underway between 18:00 and 20:30. By 21:00, most services were online.

The replacement of the destroyed in-suite equipment remains outstanding at this time.

Upstream provider attended our facility and replaced the relevant equipment. We have transitioned our network from the secondary connection back to our primary. DNS updates are in progress.
