NSA blames it on the rain
The US National Security Agency (NSA) says that a long-running outage on its website earlier this week was caused by inclement weather.
According to the US spy house, one of the data centers hosting the NSA.gov website fell victim to a storm, and was thus taken partially offline. The main page was available, but links to other pages on the site were not working properly.

The agency says that full functionality should now be restored. ®
