SCCN have carried out a temporary repair, and services are now restored
(ours are, in any case -- Two of our six unprotected STM-4's on SCCN  
were
affected by this, but they're now back)

There'll likely be some further outages down the track while the  
temporary
repair is made permanent.  But at least the emergency has been  
mitigated.

Sounds like things are pretty bad at Portland, Oregon.  Repair took over
24 hours because flooding prevented the splicing crews from getting to
the worksite.  Ouch.
