Vandals Crash Northern CA Internet for 18 Hours

Excerpted from an article by David Benda at Redding.com
Internet service was restored Wednesday afternoon for Charter Communication customers after vandals cut a fiber-optic cable, crashing service across
Northern California for about 18 hours.  The cable was cut near Emeryville near Oakland.  The outage halted email service andclippers-300x210
online bill payment services for all city of Redding departments.  Charter officials said they didn’t know how many customers were affected.  “More than just Charter customers were affected,” Susie Evans-Wood of Charter said Wednesday.  Evans-Wood said Comcast customers and local Internet service providers also were impacted by the disruption of service.  “It was a pretty dramatic cut,” she said.
