If you are aware of other sites that are down due to Superstorm Sandy, please add them to the list in our comment section below, and we will work to get them into the main list.
The sites are working quickly to get things up and running again, but it appears that Sandy’s unrelenting winds, causing, among other things, record waves, are causing record damage , and are proving to be beyond even the most careful preparation.
The Huffington Post is reportedly down for some, with the Huff Post stating:
“Due to power outages caused by Superstorm Sandy, our own website is experiencing technical difficulties. We are working around the clock to get the site back to normal. The news team, which has offices around the U.S. and in other countries, is still monitoring everything and will be updating this page with the latest on the storm. We will also update our social media accounts.”
Other reports are saying that Verizon and other carriers in the New York area are down due to the flooding rendering generators unable to operate properly.
We will continue to bring you updates as we receive them.
