Due to a computer malfunction the Federal Aviation Authority issued a ground stop for all departing flights at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) that lasted for about an hour. Flights began departing again at around 3:20 p.m. PT.
Shortly after 2 p.m. local time LAX announced on Twitter that flights were allowed to land but not to depart at LAX. Some incoming flights were reportedly being diverted to other unaffected airports, the Los Angeles Times reports. Seveal other airports were also affected, according to CBS, including those in Las Vegas, Phoenix and Salt Lake City.
It remains unclear how many flights altogether were affected by the glitch.
