A power outage yesterday in a FiberCloud data center knocked out phone and Internet services for the city of Bellingham, Washington. The outage also took out phone services for the Whatcom County call center for flu clinics as the system experienced heavy call volume in the wake of the county's first death linked to H1N1 swine flu. Service was restored after about an hour, and the downtime was attributed to an "internal electrical fault" at the FiberCloud data center, which hosts equipment supporting city and county services. See the Bellingham Herald for additional details.
