The U.S. Embassy in Burma has told American citizens there to shelter in place.

“There are indications of military movements in Yangon and the possibility of telecommunications interruptions overnight between 1:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m,” the American Citizen Services for the U.S. embassy tweeted. “U.S. citizens in Burma are advised to shelter-in-place during the 8:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. curfew hours.”

The military in Burma – also known as Myanmar – overthrew the government in a Feb. 1 coup. The situation has grown more tense in recent days, as the military cracked down against protesters who object to the coup. 

“Reports of a possible internet outage tonight from 1 a.m. until 9 a.m. tomorrow,” another tweet stated. “Please update loved ones to let them know your status. Remain at home and comply with the 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. curfew. Contact family once connectivity has resumed.”
