Power outage affects Internet traffic

On Thursday August 14th at approximately 15:00 CST a huge power outage in southern Ontario and the North Eastern United States was experienced.  K-Net's network equipment in Toronto was affected as it ran out of battery backup power affecting community access for internet and other networking services.   Rolling blackouts  (electrical wave?) are expected to continue for the next two days.   K-Net apologies for the inconveniences.
