Electrical substation damage 5/20/2024

4pm: LNF labs are open.
3pm: Equipment is being brought back online as needed and the lab is reopening. Many tools will need more time, so please check the scheduler for updated tool status.
1:30pm: Electrical substations have been restarted and we are working on the LNF facility systems. We hope to re-open the lab later today.
noon: Because of the impact on equipment as well as facility systems (DI water, air recirculation etc), all the LNF lab spaces are closed for the rest of the day. We expect to be able to reopen the space tomorrow morning 5/21 at 8am, but many tools may need more time before being available for processing. Updated schedules will be posted in the scheduler. If you need to enter the LNF today to pick up samples or anything, please create a Helpdesk ticket so that staff can escort you inside.
11am: Two EECS high-voltage electrical substations failed, and power is off in part of the LNF. The lab is closed while we assess the situation. Further updates will be provided in the wiki/announcement page and through the online services banner.
