The report is correct – The main data center is flooded right now, so we only have email and our coverage/outage map. No accounts can be accessed due to the systems being out, so this can and will affect short codes such as 646, 225, the website and just about every system. It started around 7:30pm EST and was still happening when I left around 2:00 am EST. They were hoping to at least get read only systems online in the next few hours, so that we can at least do a little for the customers. Hopefully it will be back soon – Any techies have a clue how long it takes to dry out servers and get them back online – That should give a better idea on timelines.For additional coverage of the storm’s impact, see coverage in the Seattle Times . The area is home to many major data centers, but at present this is the only report we’ve seen of storm-related downtime.
