These held up well in previous examples as well.... until their

Telecom and communication systems are holding up extremely well with high water and multi-county power outages caused by high-water... I commend all those out in this responding to immediate needs of their fellow citizens directly and the countless other setting at home in front of their PC monitoring things and making sure systems and emergences are being dealt with.  Proud to see everyone working together.. That is the way it should be.
