    Power problems in London

    Hi Folks,

    Just heard there was a massive power problem in London off the grapevine.

    Sadly im in scotland and just wondering if anyone can confirm and how widespread it is? A few TV stations are complaining about it so it must still be ongoing.

    P.s have 2 offsite servers in London and i cant get an answer from the DC, so thought i would ask here.


    Thanks,

    Kevin

    We lucked out and didn't get any of the ice storms here so far. Our snow here is melting.

    I live in Greater London and there are no problems here. I checked BBC as I thought they may have a story on it if it was true, but saw nothing.

    Power outages in London can be very localised, but I moved away, so not sure whats going on today.

    You need to retune your grapevine as it's picking up mangeld signals

    No power problems at any of the nine London DC's we have suites or PoP's in.
