A meteor crashed down last Saturday in Nicaragua, exploding and creating a huge crater.
In the spirit of our industry – IT disaster recovery and business continuity – you might expect me to inform you that the meteor had hit an electrical substation near a major city, causing a fire and knocking out power for days, which in turn caused IT services disruption and revenue losses for a number of banks, retailers, manufacturing and other businesses.
In this particular case, however, none of that happened. The meteor fell in an empty area, even though still 1,000 feet away from a hotel near the country’s only international airport (Managua Sandino). So, it could have been much worse, but this time the nature has given us a pass.
