Power has been restored at Reagan National following an airport-wide outage Wednesday night, Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority officials confirmed.

According to MWAA officials, two feeds provided by Dominion Virginia Power failed at around 9:45 p.m.

During that time, the airport ran on generator backup power.

During the outage, MWAA fficials say flights continued to operate normally, but mechanical systems without power slowed down the boarding and deplaning process.

Below is a video of the moment the lights went out at the airport.
