Power outage stops operations at RDU

RALEIGH, N.C. (WITN) – A power outage stopped operations at the main terminal at Raleigh-Durham International Airport Friday morning.

Airport officials say ticketing, security and other systems have been impacted at Terminal 2 for hours. The outage was first reported around 4 a.m.

Reports say the outage was due to a water leaking onto an electrical box.

Contractors have restored about two-thirds of operating systems as of 9 a.m. Travelers are asked to contact their airline for flight status before coming to the airport.

Terminal 1, which services Southwest, is unaffected.
