Saudi Arabia's Oil Production Just Cut in Half by Houthi Drone Strikes (UPDATED)

Not much to add to the post title. It looks like The Houthis, have launched a coordinated drone attack and managed to blow up half of Saudi Arabia's oil production.

The view from Space...

Buy gas now.

Via Pete, in the comments, we get this from the SecState:

Note that the Houthi rebels in Yemen claimed responsibility immediately after the attacks. However, they are Iranian proxies and not agents of the Yemeni government so the tweet may refer to afilliation rather than geography.

The advice stands however; buy gas now.

1 For what it's worth, Instypundito is reporting that the Saudis say that they will have their production back up to normal levels by Monday.

2 The Instapundit post made it seem far less dramatic than these pictures.  I wonder if they will be restoring production levels quickly not because the damage here is minor, but just because they have extra capacity to bring online to replace it.  Or it they were just putting out optimistic media statements.

3 Pompeo says "There is no evidence the attacks came from Yemen."

4 Yeah, it's sounding like these are Iranian drones, but not launched from Yemen.
