Power was fully restored around midnight after an outage at the world's busiest airport on Sunday that left thousands of passengers stranded in dark terminals and in planes sitting on the tarmac.
The ground stop for Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International disrupted air travel across the United States and led to the cancellation of more than 1,000 flights in and out of Atlanta.
The outage, which affected all airport operations, started with a fire in a Georgia Power underground electrical facility, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed said. The electrical fire's intensity damaged two substations serving the airport, including the airport's "Redundant system" that should have provided backup power, Reed said. Ref. CNN.
Having this airport shut down due to a power loss was no small thing. It has caused ripples through all of the airline industry and for the next few days they will be working to get everyone where they need to go due to stranded passengers. I know this is a huge airport when I flew out of it a few times. I am sure it is a bit of nightmare down there today.
