A major power outage at Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport has canceled a few flights departing from Nashville.
Eight days before Christmas and heading into one of the busiest travel weeks of the year, the planet's busiest airport was knocked offline by an apparent fire in underground electrical equipment between its huge concourses.
Terminals were without power, jetways inoperative. The airport was at a standstill.
Georgia Power restored power shortly before midnight on Sunday.

Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines is the hardest hit airline. In a tweet, the airline urged travelers to use its mobile app or website for booking assistance and updated flight status. Delta was also allowing people traveling to, from or through Atlanta through Tuesday to make a one-time change for no fee.
In Nashville, only a few early-morning flights were canceled. You can check your flight status here.
