The power was back on at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport Monday morning after Sunday’s 11-hour power failure caused more than a thousand flight cancellations and stranded passengers in dark terminals.

A combination of weather-related issues and aircraft that were diverted to other airports resulted in more than 400 cancellations on Monday by 10 a.m. local time.

On Sunday, 1,173 flights were cancelled and 207 were delayed due to the outage.

Delta, the airport’s largest carrier, cancelled 900 flights on Sunday and 300 Monday.
