Here's the official word we received:

"The outage on TAT-14 Segment I is on-going. This segment is on the European
side between the Netherlands and France, effecting traffic to UK, Ireland,
France, and other areas in Europe.   This is the 2nd failure on this ring cable
which has caused the protection path to fail.  The International Restoration
Team is working an ad-hoc restoration which will take several hours.  They have
already restored some VC4 facilities and this work is on-going."
