Currently there have been reports from Den Helder, Leiden, Den Haag, Hilversum, Haarlem, Utrecht, Amsterdam, Zoetermeer, Almere and Rotterdam. More and more reports are coming in, so it’s unknown just how many people have been affected.

It’s expected to be sorted within the next hour (we hope).


If you’re reading this, it probably hasn’t affected you. You can thank me later. 😉

*As always, the power just came back at the end of writing this – you can tell I wasn’t in the power-less zone. Hmmf*
