Wiltel's cable was cut by a front-loader that was in a disposal yard
digging outside of their right-of-way (where they should not have been
digging).

Wiltel is currently locating their hand-holes.  They are stretching out
a temporary patch cable using 3M mechanical splices to attempt temporary
restoration.

No ETR at this time.
