NORTH CAROLINA - Telecommunications companies and Internet Service Providers are showing widespread outages that may be interrupting cell and internet service up and down the East Coast Monday afternoon.

One of the hardest hit areas for these companies seems to be in North Carolina.

Thousands of complaints are coming in from up and down the East Coast, with Verizon and Spectrum customers filing the most reports of service interruptions.

Charlotte, for many of the providers, are labeled orange and have seen hundreds of outages reported since the phenomenon started around noon.

It is unclear at this time what has caused the outages and affected providers have yet to make any official comments.
