Pinterest, Instagram Knocked Out

A storm across the mid-Atlantic region that left more than a million people without electricity on Saturday also kept customers from documenting their powerless woes in sepia tones. According to Forbes, the severe thunderstorms that whipped around the nation’s capital tearing out power lines also took down a major Amazon cloud-computing location in north Virginia. The popular photo-sharing service Instagram temporarily went down, as did Pinterest and Netflix. The Daily Beast also experienced difficulties on Saturday morning due to damage caused by the storm, and was working to restore updates to its homepage as of 10 a.m.
