The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has reportedly lifted a groundstop on all flight operations at LaGuardia Airport (LGA) in the New York borough of Queens (New York) at approximately 22:30 (local time) on Thursday, December 27. Officials at LGA report partial flight operations are resuming, with some flights departing the airport. A transformer explosion at a nearby power station during the evening hours reportedly prompted a fire, which authorities say is under control, although power outages persist. Residual flight disruptions, including delays and cancelations, are possible over the coming hours.
Travelers in New York are advised to confirm flight reservations, be prepared for potential itinerary disruptions, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
