LAS VEGAS (KTNV) - A power outage has caused issues at Las Vegas' McCarran International Airport Wednesday morning.

The airport first tweeted at 7:53 a.m. that there were some outages in the airport. It was initially affecting systems at Terminal 1 and its A, B and C concourses. Terminal 1 checkpoints remained open but ticketing and gate operations were limited or out. 

Southwest, Spirit and Allegiant implemented ground stops for inbound flights to McCarran Airport as a result of the outage. Customers with American Airlines and Delta were also affected. 

Just before 9 a.m., McCarran Airport tweeted that lights were back on but it would take some time before normal operations resumed. 

However, there had been reports that the lights had gone off again around 9:30 a.m. Lights came back on again at 9:40 a.m. but ticketing counters are experiencing a significant backlog.
