TownNews.com is currently investigating a connectivity issue with our East Coast datacenter. A DDoS attack is likely the cause. 

[[Update]]

We have initiated DDoS mitigation to resist the DDoS attack. This will be left in place until we are assured that it's safe to resume normal network procedures. 

We also had some reports of admin errors when posting content. We've contacted our DDoS vendor which adjusted some of the rate limits so that legitimate traffic should no longer be affected.

We expect no further outages.
