Be Well, Honduras

This morning a magnitude 7.1 earthquake struck off the coast of Honduras.

Just recently we at OpenNMS welcomed a new client from Honduras, so Jeff sent them a note to make sure they were okay. This is the response we got back:

Yes as a matter of fact we felt the earthquake at 2am, but thankfully we are all fine and dry. Here in Tegucigalpa the quake was not so strong and there was very little damage if any.

But on the other hand our network suffered some damage and many of our sites which are closer to the epicenter are running on generators since 2am and are now very low on fuel, and other sites lost their microwave alignments. So we have a bit of a mess right now.

I’m glad everyone is okay and my thoughts are with you. Let’s hope that a minimal loss of mobile phone service is the worst that happens.
