Power outage in Los Angeles, down

Apparently there's a Really Big power outage here in Los Angeles.

At my house the power flicked enough for the UPS to click in and for things not on the UPS to reboot, but there's power just fine now so I didn't think anything of it.

Ask: Circuit not working. Can't breathe!

Internap NOC: Los Angeles? Big power outage there. Traffic signals not working, police on "full tactical alert" and stuff.

Ask: Uh-oh! Okay.

Ask: Generators?

Internap NOC: They said they came on but shut down due to overload.

Ask: Doh.

Our servers are in the same building but on a different floor, so it's entirely likely that they are affected too. Grrh. I'll have some fun getting everything running again when the power comes back down there (Robert is traveling today).
