A major outage is impacting customers on the East Coast, with some of the most critical companies being affected.

Users of Google, Slack, Verizon, Zoom, AWS and others began reporting issues around 11:00 AM Tuesday. According to DownDetector, the issues seem to be localized to an area ranging from Washington, D.C. up the cost to Boston.

Replying to one customer on Twitter, Verizon seemed to indicate the issue was the result of a fiber line being cut in Brooklyn, NY.

As Verizon says, there is no estimated time for repair. Needless to say, in the meantime, the issue is wreaking havoc on remote workers and schoolchildren.
