If there is anything we at One Wilshire can do to assist any network in
dealing with this, or recovering from the storm - let us know.  We can
probably facilitate some emergency cross connections or if you are
connected to our IXP (Any2) nail up sessions for those carriers present
within One Wilshire within a few hours.

This has hit us too. It's a major PITA and seems to have been handled
badly by at least one T1 carrier. We've seen much of the net unreachable
due to flapping BGP sessions causing route dampening on a lot of address
space in Australia. Hopefully it'll be repaired soon!
