Video shows how Hurricane Sandy methodically demolished East Coast web connectivity [video]

There’s no doubt that Hurricane Sandy was an absolutely devastating storm for the northeastern United States and now we have a video showing how the storm methodically ripped apart the region’s Internet connectivity. Internet intelligence firm Renesys has created a short animated video that shows status updates on various web hubs across the eastern seaboard as Hurricane Sandy barreled through the area on October 29th and October 30th. Renesys says that when a given hub switches its color from green to red, it means that “more than 5% of the networks at that location have been removed from the global routing table, meaning that they can’t be reached by anyone.”
