Hi Kauto,

Internaps LGA11 DC in NYC was knocked out recently by Sandy.
Here's the official statement:
"Please be advised that Internap's LGA11 facility is experiencing significant flooding in the sub-basement of the 75 Broad Street building as a result of Hurricane Sandy. The flooding has submerged and destroyed the site's diesel pumps and is preventing fuel from being pumped to the generators on the mezzanine level.

The available fuel reserves on the mezzanine level are estimated to support customer loads for approximately 5-7 hours. Once this fuel supply has been exhausted the generator will no longer be able to sustain operation and critical customer power loads will be lost."

The email was sent a while ago and by now the diesel would have run out.
Internap shut down server for customers those that they were contractually obligated to.

Currently it seems that the AWS stuff is still up and same for Rackspace.
However there have been reports of the US East submarine cables going dark.
