Parts of the Southeast suffered gas shortages and long lines at the pump after the largest fuel pipeline in the U.S. was crippled by a ransomware attack.
Colonial Pipeline — which runs the pipeline supplying fuel to nearly half of the East Coast — said Friday it fell prey to a ransomware attack, forcing it to shut down services.
The company said Monday it aims to restore service by the end of the week. However, Colonial added the situation "remains fluid and continues to evolve."
Take a look below at how the situation is playing out in Virginia, Georgia and other states.
