There are several.  Most major providers claim to have one.  But you
usually have to be a customer, and rarely post information about outages.
A provider's 'official' definition of an outage doesn't seem at all
related to what an ordinary person would consider an outage.

The DAL outage list often carries outage information from a variety
of sources, official and unofficial. outage at dal.net.  But be prepared
for an onslaught of Bull's Eye Targeted E-mail.

General discussion about outage lists (but not outages) is on the
outage-discuss at academ.com list.  A relatively quiet list.

And finally, CNN has coverage of outages on an irregular basis.
