APCN Fiber Cut traced to Japan Earthquake?

Info from PLDT about the Double Fault on the APCN2 fiber cut:

We wish to advise that as of this time, we are affected by an unfortunate incident of multiple international cable faults, particularly in the APCN2 cable system. While the exact cause is still to be confirmed, it is likely that the Japan earthquake which occurred yesterday, August 11, 2009 is the reason for the international cable faults. We would like to assure you, our valued customer, that PLDT is exerting all efforts in mitigating the effect of this outage, including the procurement of additional cable capacity from unaffected international cable systems.

Details of the outage can be found below:
