Alerts went down for a few hours. I’m sorry that happened.
On Wednesday April 3 at 11:31am EST we attempted to update a piece of our product that monitors for events and delivers alerts notifications. However, that project hadn’t been updated in a while and the release had some faulty environment variables, causing a loss of service for all alerts.
Around 2:15pm EST we resolved the issues with alerts and are taking steps to ensure such issues with deploying parts of our service don’t cause such a disruption.
