Effect of East Coast Blackout on Internet
Looking at the Internet Traffic Report, however, as of this writing a core router in Michigan, danu.ili.net (188.8.131.52), appears down. Since my father-in-law in Michigan reported he's still without power, maybe that's the cause. Of the 78 routers monitored in North America by the ITR, only a handful are in the affected states. Most of those didn't see major problems during the outage, so they must have had backup power. Oddly, besides the ili.net router, denver-br2.bbnplanet.net (184.108.40.206) and atl1-core1-l0.atlas.algx.net (220.127.116.11) are also completely down right now.
