Department of Water and Power personnel were seeking the cause of a brief electrical outage Friday at Los Angeles International Airport, according to a spokeswoman for Los Angeles World Airports.

The outage affected some passenger areas and traffic signals on access roads, but did not have a significant impact on flights or other operations, said spokeswoman Nancy Castles.

Power was restored about 20 minutes after going out about 2 p.m., she said.

[Updated at 5:58 p.m.: Castles said 16 flights at Terminals 4, 5, 7 and 8 were delayed an average of 30 minutes because of on-and-off power outages that occurred between 2 and 3 p.m.

"The flight delays were due to passengers delayed in processing through federal security screening because of the outages," she said.]
