A power outage caused disruption in most terminals at LAX airport Wednesday afternoon, according to officials.
As a result, TSA has temporarily suspended passenger screening at affected terminals. Although the airfield is functioning normally, some terminals, traffic lights, and other systems were impacted.
“[We are] assessing a power issue impacting some LAX facilities at this time,” the airport said in a statement. “The airfield is operating normally but some terminals, traffic lights and other systems may not have power. Our teams are working on the issues with DWP now.
Due to the power issue TSA has stopped screening passengers in most terminals so please allow extra time. Crews are responding as quickly as possible to restore all systems. Most of our terminals are impacted by the loss of power and crews are assessing the issue. Some departing flights may be impacted due to no power to jet bridges. Please allow extra time and check your flight status as we learn more.”
