A power outage this morning at New York’s LaGuardia Airport is affecting more than just flights.

Local New York television station WPIX-11 is reporting that a source told the network that Con Edison crews working on the east end of the airport accidentally cut through electrical feeders, causing the outage at Terminal C.

Terminal C is home to Delta Air Lines, the Delta Shuttle to Boston and US Airways.

The Federal Aviation Administration was reporting delays on some arriving flights that averaged two hours and 52 minutes as crews rushed to restore power. The outage was first reported at 4:30 a.m. this morning according to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which runs LaGuardia, JFK International and Newark-Liberty International airports.

Backup generators have been brought in but Terminal C’s jet bridges are still without power and Parking Lots 4 and 5 at LGA, the closest to Terminal C, are also without power.
