They are out there scrambling, trying to figure out where the truck that hit them came from.  The PIO has been told to make up a story.

What kills me is what they have told the public. The lost a "core 
switch". I don't know if they actually mean network switch or not but 
I'm pretty sure any of us that work on an enterprise environment know 
how to factor N+1 just for these types of days. And then the backup 
solution failed? I'm not buying it either.
