Details/Specifics of Change:

ESPC has suffered a hardware failure starting around 1700Z on 10/25/2018. Geodist3 and geodist6 are currently offline. Technicians are working on the problem.

This will affect McIDAS distribution of GOES-West, Meteosat-11, and Meteosat-8 products; these images will probably be lost and not recoverable.

It will also affect level 2 products derived from these: this includes at a minimum Global Hydroestimator, Global Mosaic, Hazard Mapping System (HMS), Advanced Biomass Burning, Imager ASOS, Single Field of View, Blended TPW, and Arctic Composite.

Note that this outage does NOT affect distribution of GOES-west through GINI or of Meteosat via PDA.
