Delta flights bound for Minneapolis-St.Paul International Airport were halted due to an electric issue in the company's server room, according to Metropolitan Airports Commission spokesperson Patrick Hogan. 

Hogan said electrcians were working to resolve the issue, but he didn't know the number of affected flights.


A ground stop was underway for incoming flights.

Delta said it experienced a brief disruption following an electrical outage in two concourses at MSP.

A spokesperson for the company said, "Electrical power has been restored at the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport following a brief disruption that affected the F and G Concourses. Flight operations are returning to normal, though there may be some residual flight delays. Customers are encouraged to check the status of their flight via the Fly Delta Mobile App or"

MSP Airport in a tweet Thursday stated that the airport's electricians were assisting in resolving the issue, which the airport stated they hoped would be resolved quickly.
