POTSDAM -- NorthCountryNow.com was offline for about five hours early today due to a power failure.
The server that hosts NorthCountryNow.com lost a drive and the machine ended up power cycling as part of a larger power failure, said officials from Slic.com. The Potsdam firm provides hosting services for NorthCountryNow.com.
The website came back online at about 9:30 a.m., after having been down since around 4 a.m.
Slic.com technicians were continuing to work on the problem this morning and were planning further testing to confirm the server was now operating normally.
