Atlanta airport power outage affecting Nashville flights

Many departing flights out of Nashville are on diversion (BNA).

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Many flights in and out of Nashville are delayed, on diversion and some canceled due to a major power outage at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on Sunday.

"A power outage has impacted several areas in the airport. #ATL officials are working to remedy the situation. Additional updates to come," tweeted the airport.

The FAA says flights headed to the airport are being held. They said the FAA Tower can operate normally, but, departures are delayed because airport equipment in the terminals is not working at this time.

Georgia Power is working to fix the problem.
