It sounds like there were multiple cables that were lost recently.
For the EASSy cable issue in the Red Sea, an ISP in Malawi stated the
issues started at "09:26 on Friday 17 February".  I don't know first
hand if that is accurate to the minute or not.  I believe this is
separate from the cable off the cost of Kenya that was cut on the
25th.
