Two of our main transmission links on Orcas are experiencing capacity drops during the severe rain showers we’ve been seeing lately. We have backup links in place for both locations that have been capable of handling most of the load when the primary links fail. At this point were are evaluating the proper procedure for such instances in regards to the primary link, and are working to optimize the backup links to decrease customer downtime and improve backup link capacity.
