Fascinating photos and a video showing just how badly damaged Verizon's cable vault is in lower Manhattan:

The entire vault was filled with water, and 90,000 feet of copper cable was destroyed.

Interestingly, customers using their FiOS fiber optic service for voice, internet, and TV had their service restored over a week ago.

Water doesn't bother optical cables, but destroyed copper.
