Blog: Dean BestStorm Doris causes power outage at just-food

Dean Best | 23 February 2017

Much of the UK has felt the impact of Storm Doris today - and just-food's head office has been no exception.

Our HQ in Bromsgrove, south of the Midlands city of Birmingham, was out of power for two hours over lunchtime but had it restored at 13:30 UK.

Fortunately, that means our readers in the Americas still received their daily newsletters.

However, the bad news is the storm knocked out one of the database servers holding the just-food site. Our technical team are working on that as I type but it means the site itself is down until further notice.
