MCI problems - LA?

anyone else seeing problems with mci in LA? apparently, from the rumors
i've heard, they've had one or several of their main fiber links cut..

just got a call from MCI, informing me of a "catastrophic fiber cut" in
the area. The tech indicated that we have a DS3 through them that "may
see a considerable performance hit" as they are performing the repairs.

Apparently this cut affects MCI, Verizon, AOL, and several other providers
which he named off.

Their internal Ticket # and callback info is as follows if anyone has

We're getting feedback that it was deliberate vandalism, fiber cut in a
manhole in a railroad yard in Rialto, CA. They are making repairs now.
