Power has been restored to Oakland International Airport's Terminal 1 after an outage there this morning, an airport spokeswoman said.

The power went out around 10 a.m., causing airport officials to brace for possible delays to flights departing from that terminal, spokeswoman Kim Domerofski said.

Domerofski said a Delta Air Lines flight to Salt Lake City that was scheduled to leave at 10:20 a.m. was delayed by about 80 minutes, but she did not know whether the delay was caused by the outage.

The terminal was back up and running on generator power a short time after the outage began, and power was restored around 12:25 p.m., Domerofski said.

She said the cause of the outage remains under investigation.

PG&E spokeswoman Tamar Sarkissian said the airport outage was not related to the utility.
