EC2 instance in "Stopping" state


i-07b82b921998944f0 is in stopping state, force stop multiple times doesn't help.

  • in us-east-1c - shouldn't have been impacted by outage (different AZ)
  • Been in stopping state for hours
  • Force stop doesn't stop it
  • Instance reports "Volume impaired", but status of attached volumes in "EC2->Volumes" is "Okay"
  • Console log is empty
  • Serial connection isn't supported in instance
  • I tried to create an AMI of the EC2 but I ended up with an AMI with a "Failed" state

Thoughts on how to proceed. Thank you for your assistance.
