This week, Google was down after experiencing an outage that impacted systems worldwide. As reported by DCD, this outage occurred shortly after an explosion at Google’s data center in Iowa - however, currently, it is unknown whether the two are related. 

According to Down Detector, the outage occurred at 9:39 p.m EDT and lasted for just over ten minutes.

“We’re aware of a software update issue that occurred late this afternoon Pacific Time and briefly affected availability of Google Search and Maps, and we apologize for the inconvenience,” Google said in a statement. “We worked to quickly address the issue and our services are now back online.”
