The power is back on at the Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport but not before disrupting travel for thousands of passengers, including some in South Florida.
According to the website FlightAware.com, today's MIA- Miami International Airport schedule shows over a dozen flights cancelled from Atlanta-- a handful are cancelled or delayed at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL.)
A fire caused the outage in Atlanta, where the mayor says there's no evidence it was deliberately set.
Good morning. Power restored at 12am; concessionaires opening; TSA security lines open. Passengers urged to check airlines for flight info— Atlanta Airport (@ATLairport) December 18, 2017
Most of the 300 Delta cancellations Monday are early morning, inbound flights to ATL to give the operation there an opportunity to more quickly rebound. Delta’s flight schedule in ATL is expected to return to normal by Monday afternoon.— Delta (@Delta) December 18, 2017
