Newark airport flights resuming after power outage

[Updated at 4:34 p.m. ET] Power has been restored to Newark International Airport after a
switching problem knocked out power to all three terminals and caused flight restrictions at the airport Monday afternoon, according to a Port Authority spokesperson. Flights are resuming with residual delays.

[Initial post] A power outage at three Newark International Airport terminals prompted airport authorities to restrict incoming and outgoing flights Monday, according to the Federal Aviation Administration website.

Several people were removed from stalled elevators, while others remain stranded in the airport's monorail trains, according to a spokesman for the Port Authority for New York and New Jersey.

    There was also on on Jan 26th. We sat in darkness for about 2 hours – no explanation and certainly no news report.
