We had a power outage last nigh and I came to work with the following message on the server:

The following VDs have missing disk: 00
If you proceed (or load the configuration utitlity), these VDs will be marked OFFLINE and will be inaccessible.  Please check your cables and ensure all disk are present.  Press any key to continue, or 'C' to load the configuration utility

The server is setup as a RAID 5 with 4 disks.  It appears that 2 of the 4 disk are flashing amber.  What are the chances that 2 disk go down at exactly the same time.  Any suggestions here.  Please HELP!!!!
