The power is back on at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in Arlington after an hourlong outage that brought flights and security screening to a standstill on Monday.

Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority spokeswoman Courtney Mickalonis said the power went out at about 12:30 p.m and came back on at 1:30 p.m.

Flights were grounded during that period, but the Transportation Security Administration was able to quickly resume screening using a backup generator at two of four checkpoints.

Ms. Mickalonis said delays likely will persist throughout the afternoon, so passengers should check with their airline before heading to the airport to catch a flight.
