165 Halsey Newark 3rd Floor *explosion* ?

We lost a bunch of MCI circuits at 8am EST this morning and the colo provider informed us there was some kind of explosion on the 3rd floor. Anyone have additional info or details ? Not sure how serious - our power is still on and our XO and ATT circuits are still up as well as bandwidth.

I had a sonet link through there drop from 7:56 to 8:07 this morning. Haven’t gotten ahold of my SE yet to hear the story.


Word is there was a battery leaking acid, fire dept was called, and building was evacuated. From what I hear no loss of service however. I’m not on-site but this is what I’m hearing.
