- A power outage grounded flights Sunday at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, but the cause of the outage is not known.
The outage left thousands of passengers sitting in the dark on a busy day for holiday travel. It's unclear when the power will be back on or when flights will resume.
CBS News transportation correspondent Kris Van Cleave reports that the airport has backup generators that allow for minimal operation but the outage is impacting the airport's ability to operate substantially.
Airport spokesperson Reese McCranie told The Associated Press the outage occurred early Sunday afternoon. He said all airport operations are being affected and that outgoing flights were halted.
McCranie says some incoming flights are being diverted to other airports in the region.
As many as 80 to 100 planes have been grounded at Atlanta's busy airport due to a power outage, ABC News confirmed.
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, one of the world's busiest airports, suffered a power outage at around 1 p.m. Sunday. Airport personnel, Atlanta Fire and Rescue officials and Georgia Power staff are on the scene to respond and restore service, a spokesman told ABC News.
"I don't know how long its been out but we've been standing here in the dark for about 35 minutes," traveler Kate Murphy told ABC News.
What a mess that was and still is!
A few hours without power is nothing compared to months without it - like Puerto Rico has been enduring.
