Power was being restored at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) on Wednesday afternoon after most terminals experienced outages earlier in the day.

Driving the news: TSA is expected to resume screenings by 3:30pm PST after halting operations in most terminals, the airport said, adding that conveyances will take longer to restart.

  • The airfield was operating normally, though some traffic lights and other systems were without power, according to LAX.
  • The cause of the outages, which lasted less than an hour, is under investigation, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power said.

Of note: Some departing flights may be affected, and passengers are urged to check their flight status.
