Often a disaster will incidentally knock out some proportion of network infrastructure in the area, turning a previously well-proportioned network into an under-proportioned one, simultaneously with a sharp increase in demand as people try to find out what is going on or communicate with friends and relatives, and emergency response teams also try to coordinate their essential work.

Overbuffering, the silent killer:

I live in california, where I kind of expect the network to collapse
in the next Big One.
