Update: Flights are starting to depart, with most of the flights originally scheduled to take off early in the morning now taking off by 10 a.m. Airport officials have not determined what caused the power outage, but it could have been weather related or an electrical failure.

The Dane County Regional Airport reported that it suffered a power outage Monday morning, and a backup generator failed as well.

The airport posted a series of tweets from its account @MSN_airport on the situation, including one that stated that the airport terminal is closed and told people not to travel to the airport until additional information is posted.

Earlier the airport stated that morning flights will be impacted until power is returned and advising people with flights to check with their airline.

The airport also said that planes were able to land and depart safely, with only terminal operations affected.

This story will be updated.
