At 3:38 UTC this morning a nearby 15kV power cable failed and caused a blackout of the entire neighbourhood. The equipment servicing BURP sucessfully switched to backup power and kept servicing internet requests for a few minutes and then shut down so that no data would be lost.
The network connection relays in the area are on a seperate power grid and were not affected by this outtage.
At 3:45 the power was restored and all services resumed.
