Tysons, VA

On the eve of a snowstorm sweeping across the region, it was the cybersphere that took a surprising hit.

Around 1 p.m., the City of Falls Church and the Town of Vienna both announced on Twitter that their websites had crashed and were inaccessible.

Both localities use CivicPlus, a web development business that manages over 2,500 local government websites.

An employee at CivicPlus said the service is “experiencing technical disturbances” while staff at Vienna said the website provider’s datacenter faced an outage.

By 2:40 p.m., the Town of Vienna reported that their website was functional again. The City of Falls Church site is also currently online.
