Rolling power outages may impact access to services

 Issue has been Resolved

History:

 Beginning on February 15 at 12:15 p.m., Evergy began to turn off electricity to blocks of customers for approximately 30 – 60 minutes and then restore electricity. This action puts our IT Change process into an elevated risk state. Please avoid making changes to customer-facing production servers or services to minimize potential risks that may impact students, faculty, and staff during this time. The rolling power outages continue and we are anticipating the change freeze to be in effect through Friday, Feb. 19. We will post an update when the situation changes.

 
History:
In response to the extreme winter weather conditions, Evergy is using controlled rolling blackouts to manage demand for electrical power. The outages will last 30-60 minutes.

In addition to the power outages, the Division of Information Technology may need to shut down services temporarily. As a result, you may experience campus-based computing and network services outages. K-Staters are reminded to frequently save their work. Emergency communication services are not affected.
