UW-Madison website & e-mail services down


by Chris Patterson

MADISON -- The University of Wisconsin-Madison website is down after a battery failed at their data center around 8:30 a.m. University officials say this will also block anyone trying to log onto a university e-mail account. Most computers on campus are effected by this outage.

It's unknown if the outage is weather related, and there's no estimates on when the web services will be back up.

The university tells us they power their data center with batteries to avoid power surges or power outages.
