We've received a report from a reader letting us know that Verizon has had a fiber cut that is affecting most of the Northern Indiana area.  Reportedly isolated somewhere between Fort Wayne, Indiana and Chicago, IL. 

The current estimate is 4-5 hours. 

Please do not be alarmed if your connectivity to sites is affected, this is why.  The Internet is not melting.  (Well, today at least)

Updated:  While no official statement from Verizon has been made, we have had reports that the sites that this outage was affecting are back up.  We're guessing that Verizon has the problem fixed.
