That sucks. I assume it must be due to the sheer volume of players in a single location.
If you haven't already, you should log a ticket for visibility.
You may have to switch to solo until the problem resolves itself.
The unofficial word from FD, "Due to the heavy winds and rain, all of the server hamsters have become scared and refuse to run.
In an attempt to calm them, we gave them valium.
Now they're all asleep.
We'll update you as soon as they wake up.
Sorry for the inconvenience!"
