Hurricane Sandy affecting connectivity

Hurricane Sandy’s effects on the American east coast appears to be affecting some of our servers and services including our Live Chat due to power outages caused by the hurricane.

Excerpt from CNet:

That coincided with when Gawker.com and Gizmodo.com went offline. In a Twitter updateat 4:21 p.m. PT, Gizmodo said: “We’ll be back soon! There was a data center battery failure after the power went down in Lower Manhattan. Generators powering up.”

Buzzfeed.com is also down, saying: “Our site is down. Problems with NY-area servers due to Sandy.” Livestream.com says it’s experiencing “a major outage.”

Nearly 1 million homes and businesses in New York state are without electricity, according to an Associated Press report (here’s ConEdison’s outage map for the New York City area andanother from NSTAR). Power outages in Maryland reportedly topped 145,000 customers.

We wish everyone affected for their safety and homes and belongings to be spared.
