I've been watching

https://www.kfvs12.com/livestream/

and they've been very confused about old data for the past ~10 minutes. Really a dangerous situation when most people depend on the news for their safety and the news is telling them that the cell has been stuck over grand rivers when it's actually already over princeton.

 

He's doing the broadcast with gr2analyst now, what a baller.

I think PAH is down hard. Radar image is old. Springfield is doing full service backup.

Yeah. It was my error. Though I remain confused.  (https://www.nws.noaa.gov/directives/sym/pd03041004s042005curr.pdf): For a power failure to take down an office, it would have to take out the generator. Both the office, and the radar, are supposed to have backup power in the event of commercial power failure (https://www.weather.gov/media/bro/pdf/PressReleaseNEXRADGeneratorSLEP_BRO.pdf). So, something isn't adding up for me. Was that offline for them? Was there storm damage to the generators? Etc.

Could be a fiber cut. If no internet and backups have failed, can't issue products. They will still be able to see the radar locally, but it's not getting out for the world to see.

I am in the generator industry which is why I’m here. Generators are notoriously hard to maintain and a severe, and I mean very severe, shortage of technicians means there is frequently no expertise available to maintain them or fix problems. My bet is on generator failure and probably multiple sites.
