DownDetector, a website that monitors online outages, shows more than 55,000 Americans are without service – and just as many are starting their workday.
Although the outage is blanketing the entire US, the map on DownDetector shows San Francisco as being hit the hardest.
Other locations include Los Angeles, Chicago, parts of New Jersey and other locations in the mid-west.
Comcast Xfinity was reported to be down for thousands of Bay Area customers Monday night that carried over into the next day.
This region includes major cities like San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland and Fremont.
According to Oakland News Now, the outage stems from a major storm that hit the region that brought intense winds at speeds of more than 40 miles per hour, which may have impact Comcast Xfinity service.
As of November 2019, Comcast was the second largest pay TV provider in the US with 20.4 million users.
