MapQuest Traffic API doesn't return any incident

I'm using MapQuest traffic API to collect traffic incident data for several months. Starting from 5/25/2017, I see the API doesn't return any incident data. I even created a new API key but still have the same problem. Does anyone else had the same problem?

I appreciate any help in advance, 

Sobhan

Can you post the request that
Can you post the request that is not returning any incidents?   The incidents request is working great for me and we haven't heard any other users having similar issues with the api.

For example following url

For example following url should return current incidents for south part of California.

But I don't get any results in return. In fact, I just get a blank page.

Update

Update

I realized the problem is about the last part of the URL, that is outFormat=xml.

When I remove this part or replace it with outFormat=json its working like before! I'm using MapQuest APIs for about 1 year, but this is the first time that I see such issue.
