Two power outages knocked out electricity to about 125 homes and delayed travelers at Nashville International Airport Friday night. Lights in the main terminal went out for about three hours ending at 9 p.m. They remained on for 45 minutes before going out for another 30 minutes, airport spokesman Deeann Bradford said. All power was restored by 10:15 p.m.

Runway lights were not affected, and planes landed safely, Bradford said. WKRN-TV reported that some flights were diverted from the airport.

In the terminal, passengers waited in the dark for flights or baggage.
