NDBC website says "facilities issue with no ETR". It'll be a week tomorrow since this "problem" happened. We can send a probe to Mars but can't get buoy reports????????

I talked with the forecaster at Newport Weather a few minutes ago and he said the location where the servers is at had a water pipe bust which took down all of the equipment.. He said no known known time of service renewal but they were working hard to get it back up and going.. :(

I'm fairly shocked that, in this computer age, there is only one server farm and no redundancy. Sort of tells you what kind of value NOAA places on the data from those buoys.

We're a world of technology, s**t breaks due to unforeseen reasons ... shrug
