Claycord.com reports that following a brief Instagram outage, Facebook also went down, causing panic among several residents.

Facebook’s outage was reportedly caused by an internal glitch, but nevertheless raised concern in the East Bay, prompting five people to call in to ask when the sites would be back online.

“Our lines are [sic] dedicated to handle life and death calls, and even though Facebook is important to a lot of people, it’s not a matter of life and death when it stops working,” the dispatcher said. “One caller even called back to tell me I was being rude because I told her it wasn’t a life threatening emergency.”
