The Power of Deduction

When one gets two e-mails saying there will be an overnight power outage, and that the building that one's computer is in is said to be "affected", how does one deduce that the outage does not pertain to him/her?

At least some of the people here said they didn't bother reading the message, thus making them merely ignorant.

Aside for added lulz: During the outage, the contractors failed at correctly wiring the phases of the 3-phase power to one of the buildings.  Some of the tenants were amused (term used wrongly) by the HVAC blowing the wrong way and the elevators going the opposite direction.
