Colonial Pipeline Shutdown - supplies fuel to the East Coast
I paid $2.67 today in Southern New England. $20 got me 3/4 tank.
Emergency Declaration Issued For 17 States In Wake Of Cyberattack On Colonial Pipeline
ALABAMA, ARKANSAS, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, DELAWARE, FLORIDA, GEORGIA, KENTUCKY, LOUISIANA, MARYLAND, MISSISSIPPI, NEW JERSEY, NEW YORK, NORTH CAROLINA, PENNSYLVANIA, SOUTH CAROLINA, TENNESSEE, TEXAS, AND VIRGINIA
I read somewhere they may be back online by the end of the week, but there isn't much information out there on this.
The company will likely have to pay the ransom.
Two gas stations near my house ran out of gas. I had to drive to three this morning.
KEEP YOUR GAS TANK FULL THIS WEEK.
Today I passed gas stations with lines out to the highway, and people standing around talking to each other. I hope this resolves soon.
I wonder if anyone's made an event chart for the pipeline shutdown.
It happened on Friday. I am looking for the breaking news. This is current:
JUST IN - Colonial Pipeline's website now down amid cyber attack.
Looks like the FBI and authorities do not tell the full story. This seems much more severe than disclosed to the public so far.
EDIT to add - this is also new:
JUST IN - Massive explosion after a direct hit near Ashkelon, Israel. Eilat-Ashkelon oil pipeline facility damaged and on fire.
