9 dead after violent storms; Instagram users hardest hit?
Instagram's down? What am I supposed to with my food, eat it?

“My Instagram” trended nationally this morning as users of the popular image-sharing service struggled to come to terms with their inability to share pics of their ingrown toenails and mid-morning snacks.
If you're having trouble with Instagram, Netfix and Pinterest blame it on last night's storms in the mid-Atlantic. Massive power outages.

Instagram, Netflix and Pinterest were among the Amazon Cloud-driven services knocked out by the destructive storm in Virginia last night. Nine people are dead, millions are without power, and governors in Ohio, West Virginia, and Virginia have declared statewide emergencies.
