minor power outage in Haifa

I don't know if this is connected to an attack, but the power just went off on the Technion campus for a couple minutes. My office connection suddenly went dead and when I called my secretary, she didn't answer and I didn't get any voicemail.
My assumption was that the building was hit.
I finally got through to someone who said that the power was back on and they didn't have any details of what was going on.

At the moment our Internet connection is still dead. Unfortuantely, I can't work if the Internet connection doesn;t and I am the guy in charge of making sure the Internet is working, which means that I might have to go into work tomorrow.

I'll keep you updated if the story continues.

it was all over the country. Here in Ramat Gan we experienced it for only a second, but my wife in RBS said it was a few minutes and my father in law in jerusalem said it was 20 minutes.
The news reports do not yet seem to be saying what caused it...

It was caused by a fire in Ashdod. I was driving in J-Town and suddenly all the lights went out.

the previous comment was deleted because we don't allow enemy posting or posting that tries to destroy our morale.
Israel is strong and will come out on top.
