It's unclear how widespread the outage is or what is its cause.

Back in Atlanta, Delta is said to be the hardest hit with its biggest hub operation located at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta. Even when it added a presence at new sports venues SunTrust Park and Mercedes-Benz Stadium this year, the fast-food chicken chain kept its concessions closed on Sunday game days.

Georgia Power restored electricity to Atlanta's international airport just before midnight eastern time Sunday.

Other airlines also canceled flights for the rest of Sunday.

Weiss, host of The Bert Show, was returning from Atlanta from Dallas.

Officials are reportedly on the scene "working to remedy the situation", Atlanta Airport said.

The ticketing and baggage areas were a bit backed up, but security lines were moving quickly.

The Georgia Power company said they are aware of the outage at Atlanta Airport and are investigating.

Emergency repair crews were still trying to diagnose and repair the problem as of 7 p.m. Sunday.

Images shared on social media showed passengers waiting in darkness. "So we're talking possibly millions of people disrupted over the next few days and it is certainly not going to be fixed in one day", he said.

- Southwest Airlines has canceled all operations in and out of Atlanta. United Airlines and JetBlue Airways were among carriers reporting delays or cancellations.

But the airport said that "the cause of the incident remains under investigation".

In 2016, the Atlanta airport handled 104,171,935 passengers, the most of any airport in the world. "So I'm trying everything possible to get there".
