Website down as storm makes landfall near ADV's Houston HQ

The website and servers for the North American anime distributor ADV Films have been offline this weekend as the company's staff deals with the aftermath of Hurricane Ike. On Saturday morning at 2:10 a.m. CT, Hurricane Ike made its Texas landfall just southeast of Houston, which is where ADV Films is headquartered. Much of the metropolitan Houston area is without power, but almost all the areas that were in danger of flooding were evacuated well in advance of the storm's approach. (ADV Films' headquarters is about 50 miles or 80 kilometers inland.) There is no set date for when power will return to most of affected areas.

Thank you to Steve Mort for the news tip.
