The FAA says all radar systems for South Florida airports have returned to service after a power problem prevented normal radar functions, causing a ground stop earlier Thursday afternoon.
An FAA 1:30 statement read, “The facility is operating on generator power with commercial power available as a back-up. We are investigating the source of the commercial power outage.”
The agency said six Miami International Airport-bound flights and eight Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International bound flights were diverted to other airports. Departure delays at MIA sit at 16 to 30 minutes while under 15 at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood.
This is a breaking news story and will be updated as more is learned.
