Here's the RFO I saw late last night:
During a planned generator test that was being performed by Westin
building maintenance, a bad battery resulted in the inability of the
back up system to hold power during the transition from commercial
power to generator power. This resulted in a service interruption
that lasted approximately 7 minutes (22:00PT - 22:07PT).
Before the problem could be isolated, building management switched
the power back from generator to commercial power resulting in
another service interruption that lasted approximately 8 minutes
(23:43PT - 23:51PT).
Still trying to find out what happened with XO.
