Another quick update: Amazon is reporting a few minutes ago that they have resolved the root cause of the S3 outage and are preparing to bring the S3 service back online. No ETA yet though. We'll keep updating this thread with progress as we have it.

Some good news: Amazon has partially restored S3 and expect to have fully restored the service by around 5:00pm PDT.
We have started to put Amazon S3 back into service on WordPress.com and images which were not cached locally are already starting to appear on the site again.
Keeping a close eye on things, and will keep you updated.
is this issue also affecting the header images?
thanks in advance.
Just a quick wrap up on this issue: Amazon is reporting that S3 is completely restored on Amazon's side and WordPress.com has now fully reintegrated S3 back into our service. Everything should be back to normal now with blog images and files.
