Unprecedented Havoc

Well, last night i slept just after 3.30am, but there was a call in the morning, telling me that some VPN connections have failed. At the first time, we thought it was only a matter of electricity. As many times happen before, the IT equipments broken down due to electrical spike or even worse, lightning surge.
This morning, all predictions were false. There was an incident where our major ISP/telecommunication gateway malfunctioned because of flood... I do think that the company did not expect this circumstance, something that was never predicted before.
Through the night, the connection is only half way restored, all client goes crazy. They need to upload data to Data Operation Center to support the National Sport Competition event, which was started 5 days ago.
However, the main site has been fully restored only 4 hours after the catastrophe.
