In addition to these issues, there is also a 911 outage in several states along the east coast.
Affected areas include Charlottesville, Virginia, where Rockbridge County Fire-Rescue and Emergency Management has confirmed there are issues in several states.
Community members have been urged to call (540) 572-4200 or text 911 in an emergency, while residents of Lexington and Buena Vista have also been affected, WFXR reported.
Additionally, around 12:10 p.m. ET, it was reported that the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) website and the companies filing page were experiencing similar issues with an outage.
Likewise, Akamai Technologies Inc in Cambridge, Massachusetts, reported an outage in the Edge DNS service of its global content delivery network.
Akamai’s blog noted that this affects several websites around the world.
“We are actively investigating the matter,” read their statement. “If you have any questions or experience an impact as a result of this issue, please contact Akamai Technical Support.
“To save time, we are providing you with the most recent information available, which is subject to change, correction and update.”
The issues are erupted on the blog when issues with Akamai’s Edge DNS or global traffic management services “could impact a significant portion of our customer base.”
However, it is not just US agencies and businesses that are affected by an outage this afternoon.
A French outlet called franceinfo has revealed that its app and website are inaccessible in a Twitter statement that coincided with the mass blackouts in America.
“Due to a technical problem, our site and our application are unavailable. Our technical teams are mobilized to restore the situation”, we can read in their tweet.
