ATLANTA — Officials at Atlanta's airport said about two-dozen flights were canceled and others delayed because of a power outage on Monday.

Katena Carvajales, a spokeswoman for Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, said about 18 of the airport's 199 gates lost power for about seven hours. Power was restored around noon (1700 GMT). The cause of the outage wasn't immediately clear.

Delta Air Lines spokesman Anthony Black said the airline canceled about two dozen flights and was forced to delay some flights into Atlanta. He said some arrivals and departures had to be moved away from the gates that didn't have power.
