Hurricane Sandy takes down Web Sites

In addition to cutting power to millions and causing massive flooding in New York City, Superstorm Sandy, one of the biggest storms ever to hit eastern United States, also flooded servers of Datagram Inc in New York City, bringing down several media websites it hosts, including Huffington Post and Gawker.

Those sites, along with Buzzfeed and Mediaite, apparently all went offline after 7 p.m. Monday. Popular viral content website Buzzfeed issued a statement explaining that “Datagram, the ISP whose Manhattan servers host BuzzFeed, Huffington Post, Gawker, and other sites, has lost power.”

Datagram provides network and data center based services including Dedicated Hosting, Internet Access, Colocation and Disaster Recovery Solutions. ConEd, New York City’s electrical utility company, shut off power to lower Manhattan last night, which affected Datagram. Data centers are equipped with backup electrical generators, but the fuel pumps that supply Datagram’s generators were in the basement, which flooded with five feet of water.

Datagram is located on 33 Whitehall Street in Battery Park, the southernmost point of Manhattan and a declared evacuation zone. The area was among the worst-hit in the city.
