Sounds like on purpose.

Not to be ghoulish, but the traffic impact is looking to be fairly large
on the 'net (and on the PSTN in the NYC area).

Just to add a few points:

All VHF TV stations except for CBS 2 are off the air, many radio stations
are off the air, and it's largely impossible to get a call in.  All
bridges and tunnels are closed (which I assume includes the PATH).

...and news now includes the white house and the pentagon being evacutated,
the pentagon due to an airplane crash - the white house due to a fire.

This shows a pretty impressive degree of coordination.

Beyond that, all US airports have been closed.

Gonna be a long day.
