Popular websites the Huffington Post and Gawker appear to have been knocked out by Superstorm Sandy.
At 8:00 AM Tuesday, the Post website owned by AOL had the following message up for readers:
Huffington Post Outage
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.
