It was on the news tonight.  It was caused by a CenturyLink outage.
Because of the time it took to recover from the outage(~10hours or more),
the FCC is opening an investigation.

If it's a hack, it's the most complex and comprehensive one I've ever seen.
They also hacked the road signs and social media accounts (across multiple
platforms) of multiple 911 call centers, I would cite that they managed to
get on the news somehow, but these days that's not a notable achievement.
