A giant Verizon (VZ) switching hub in NYC's financial district was badly damaged by Hurricane Sandy. The facility's "cable vault," which aggregates incoming telecom cables, was flooded, crippling access to the building's (undamaged) switches. Though the facility is now partly operational, another downtown switching hub has been left completely inoperable by flooding.
