Hi Shane,
There was a short broadcast event but our mitigation triggered and avoided
any major impact outside of a couple of services that triggered moments
before our own mitigation.

Feel free to reach our support team via the support chat if you need any
support regarding this but you should be fine to re-enable your port.
