Doubt it's scheduled downtime. Could be an issue with the servers, or someone simply unplugged the wrong thing. So many reasons for why a site is down :)

As for reviving them - if it's server related the dev ops will be frantically trying to get the servers back up, or getting makeshift backup servers running to prevent downtime from being too painful. Could be a lot of copying data if they're not synced.
