Cox outage in Alexandria, Va.

One of my employees is reporting that Cox told her a backhoe "cut a main line" somewhere in the Alexandria, Virginia area earlier this morning. More than likely a fiber cut I'd imagine. Apparently it's affecting about 50,000 residential customers and has been down since 5 a.m.

Anyone have more info?

Absolutely no problems on my home circuit in Clifton, Virginia (20124, 25 miles due West of Alexandria). Last time I checked I was connected to Head End 8.
