Ike causes record internet outages

New York, NY; September 18, 2008

Among the hardest hit areas were Texas, Ohio and Pennsylvania. But Renesys Corporation says the storm also caused widespread Internet outages in Arkansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Kentucky, Illinois and Indiana.

Surrounding states had scattered outages as well. That represents the largest area to lose its connections to the Internet since the Northeast blackout of 2003.
