SPOTLIGHT: Oregon storms knock out phones


Record storms with hurricane-force winds that pummeled the Oregon coast Sunday and early Monday reportedly knocked out telephone service for at least 20,000 Qwest customers and many more cell phone customers. 9-1-1 access also wasn't available for some time. Further details of outages and damage weren't yet available as of late yesterday, but Qwest had restored some service by Tuesday and was working to restore the rest. Depending on the extent of damage, of course, some users could be without service for several days.
