Outage at Atlanta airport affecting flights in Louisville

Power has been restored to some terminals, but may not be fully restored until midnight.

In many ways, Sunday's outage was no different from a massive snowstorm blowing through the region.

Thousands arrived at Atlanta's airport before sunrise Monday to find long lines at ticket counters.

While power has been restored to the world's busiest airport, the travel woes will linger for days. It expected commercial traffic to resume on Monday. Passengers are also directed to follow their individual airlines' social media channels for flight information.

"Delta is aware of a power outage at the Atlanta Airport affecting airport concourses and terminal buildings", spokesman Michael Thomas told CNN.

Upon finally getting to the airport, Klein described Hartsfield-Jackson as a "war zone". The fire damaged backup systems, preventing them from providing power to the airport as designed.

The power failure was apparently due to a fire at an underground electrical facility in the early Sunday afternoon of 17 December.

Some incoming flights are being diverted to other airports in the region. Airlines with hubs in Atlanta, such as Delta, made the most cancellations.

"It's going to be difficult to get everyone where they want to go", said Robert Mann, principal at R.W. Mann & Company, an airline industry consultancy. ATL officials are working with Georgia Power to identify the cause and remedy the situation.

In June 2016, employees at the fast-food chain went to work on Sunday to provide food to people who were donating blood after the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting.

The Federal Aviation Administration announced that it had put a "ground stop" on flights inbound for Atlanta, meaning they are held at the airports from which they were to depart.

Airlines had canceled 1,173 flights to or from the Atlanta airport as of 10:55 p.m., according to flight-tracking site FlightAware.
