    Yes, of course they're on top of it and I'm sure it will be temporary, just like any other power outage or network outage.

    However, it is a rather big deal for several million people; the bold declaration is to call attention to it so that people in the affected region know what the situation is as quickly as possible. That way they can email or text their contacts as necessary to keep in touch.

    The larger point of incidents like this is to call attention to how reliant we are on cellphone service these days.
