For the Second Time in a Year, Some St. Michael Communications Go Dark
If you had service via Charter Cable or Verizon, you were missing out yesterday in St. Michael and beyond.
Another fall-like day. Another day in the dark for Charter customers and those who use Verizon Wireless.
According to a direct Tweet placed Tuesday afternoon to Charter Communications, St. Michael and Albertville were left in the dark, as well as some surrounding areas, including Elk River and Monticello.
The incident happened shortly after lunch Tuesday. It's not known where, exactly, as of yet. But a cable was hit in the area, disrupting Charter services, Verizon Wireless connections and other communications services (Dish Network, for example).
Well, we're still searching.
It's the second time in less than a year. The same, nearly exact scenario (it was even on a Tuesday) played out in mid-September 2011, to the same set of customers.
More when we know the rest of the story (with all apologies to Paul Harvey).
