In a dramatic turn of events yesterday, the prwdot.org servers and personnel were spared from ***Blackout 2003|http://www.cnn.com/2003/US/08/15/power.outage/index.html***. The prwdot.org server is actually located in Parsippany, New Jersey, which, although close to the NYC metro area, was not hit by the outage. In addition, the state of Massachusetts was almost entirely spared from the outage, as was most of northern New England. Parts of western Mass. and Vermont were hit, however.
There were also reports that some parts of Mount Vernon, Ohio were affected by this outage. In particular, some houses on the east side of the city were without power from approximately 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., while other parts of the city remained fully powered.
Thank you for your concern, and we now return you to your regularly scheduled website.
