Extremely high volume of whales 4 years ago

We are experiencing an outage due to an extremely high number of whales.  Our on-call team is working on a fix.

Update (5:18a): We are recovering from this incident. A sudden failure coupled with problems in switching to a backup system produced a high number of errors for around 90 minutes. This made the site largely inaccessible. No data was lost or compromised during this outage.
