GREER, S.C. (AP) - Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport had a few delays on Christmas Eve after a four-hour power outage.

Airport spokeswoman Rosylin Weston said Thursday that things like security and check-in were running slower. She also recommended that people check with their airlines to make sure their flights are on time the rest of the day.

Duke Energy officials say a power pole fell on state Highway 14 near the airport around 6 a.m. Christmas Eve, cutting power to about 650 customers. The power was restored shortly after 10 a.m.

Weston says the biggest inconvenience was some things typically done by computer were now being done by hand to conserve generator power.
