Re: Hurricane Sandy-Frankenstorm Outages/Issues/Updates
I was fortunate and did not lose power to my home (one of ~10% of LIPA customers), but my cable went down at 5:30 PM last week Monday. I got my cable back this Sunday at 6:30 PM. 2 blocks down from me there was a sizable section of the town that lost power, and I'm sure the amplifiers & other equipment on the line lost power. While they use generators, none was on my node or other equipment (amplifiers/etc), probably because of low impact of part of a node vs restoring a full node elsewhere.
