Update from Fastlys status page:
Identified The issue has been identified and a fix is being implemented. Jun 8, 10:44 UTC
Whats possible now is a bunch of sites will suffer from a second outage due to lack of caching as their application servers have to suddenly catch up.

As Fastly is a global CDN network, the outage isnt limited to a single region, rather its affecting globally.
