"The cause is blamed on equipment failure" in a 34.5 kilovolt
supply line, according to LA Water and Power spokeswoman Carol
The power interruption knocked out all phones, radios and radars
within the air traffic control operation at LAX. Several flights
were left in holds.
Even after the lights went back on, the remaining equipment
outages forced cancellation of all instrument approaches.
Fortunately, the weather was good enough for visual approaches.
