English term or phrase: But then the repair crew accidentally severed the backup connection
It was the Monday morning after the July 4th weekend. The power went out in the highest building in Philadelphia. Not to worry, the disaster recovery (DR) specialists had that one covered-the building had a connection to a separate part of the grid. But then the repair crew accidentally severed the backup connection.
"Every disaster has a different face, so no one can accurately predict," says Nick Voutsakis, chief technology officer at Glenmede Trust Co., a wealth management firm whose headquarters occupies four floors of that building in Philly. "Your planning has to be flexible enough to cope."
这个But与前面的Not to worry在逻辑上是否有矛盾?
