Connectivity to all sites and the backbone circuit have been restored
and traffic should be flowing normally now.  If any Klamath Falls area
customers are still experiencing issues please contact the NERO NOC:

For your enjoyment, I've attached a couple of pictures of the damaged
locations; Hunter Communications indicates this occurred 160 ft in the
air and 3000 ft from the nearest road.
