Facebook and Instagram experienced widespread outages Wednesday, leading some panicked users in Bothell, Wash., to report their social networking emergencies to 911.

"We will move mountains to help those in our community," Bothell Police tweeted. "However we can't fix Facebook so please don't call 911 to 'let us know [it's] down.'"

Facebook said "a networking issue" was to blame for the connection problems.

"Earlier today, a networking issue caused some people to have trouble accessing Facebook services," a company representative told CNET. "We quickly investigated and started restoring access within about an hour, and we have nearly fixed the issue for everyone. We're sorry for the inconvenience."
