Several major US websites, including Instagram, Pinterest and Netflix, went out of service early this morning (Singapore time) due to a major outage to a server, caused by severe thunderstorms in North Virginia.

According to Forbes, the outage is said to have occurred at 11:21am (Singapore time) and services, such as Instagram remain offline till now (4pm). Pinterest, however, has acknowledged that their services were restored at 2:05pm. Twitter has been flooded with frustrated tweets from users who are not able to log into their accounts.

Hopefully, the issue can be resolved soon.
