The storm killed six people and knocked out electricity for hundreds of thousands in the Mid-Atlantic region.

 

 

Amazon spokeswoman Kay Kinton told The Associated Press in an email that the storm cut power to some of company’s operations. Service has been restored for most customers, Kinton said.

Netflix tweeted that subscribers should reconnect if they still experienced problems.

Pinterest says employees are working on remaining issues that may affect performance.
