Re: If you use QRZ.COM to lookup call info - Pleasereadthis !



Based on the information at the link that Ron supplied, it appears that 
QRZ.COM is located in the first floor Phase 1 section of the hosting 
company's datacenter.  That means that they probably won't be back online 
until this evening, since that is the area that suffered the most from the 
explosion and electrical fire.  Fortunately it's being stated that the 
damage was confined to the electrical supply system and not the actual 
servers.

>From the sounds of it, this is not a small facility.  They have 9000+ 
servers located there and are probably on a first name basis with the local 
power company.

This is why you have disaster recovery processes - these guys have been 
working 24-7 since the event to get service back to their customers.

The data center that QRZ has the servers has had a fire and they are
without power and have had to shut down the generators at the request of
the Houston FD.  Please check the following URL for up to date info -
