Was the cluster network on the storage backbone (I assume you mean 
network here)?

If not, the loss could be the result of heavy load on the node resulting 
from the outage.
Else this would be weird, as quorum does not depend directly on the 
running (or failed) VMs.

I'd check if the problematic Node can send to the other nodes via 
multicast [1]
then restarting corosync and eventually pve-cluster should do it:

systemctl restart corosync pve-cluster

cheers,
Thomas
