CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Delta Air Lines has resumed limited departures after a power outage hit its computer systems globally early Monday, causing the airline to ground, cancel and delay flights.

Delta warned travelers to expect mass cancellations and flight delays throughout the day.

The problem is disrupting travel for thousands of passengers worldwide and here at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.

"A power outage in Atlanta, which began at approximately 2:30 a.m. ET, has impacted Delta computer systems and operations worldwide, resulting in flight delays," Delta said in a statement issued just before 7 a.m.

"Large-scale cancellations are expected today. All flights enroute are operating normally. We are aware that flight status systems, including airport screens, are incorrectly showing flights on time. We apologize to customers who are affected by this issue, and our teams are working to resolve the problem as quickly as possible. Updates will be available on news.delta.com."

The problem came to light on Twitter early Monday as Delta responded to customer complaints. 

A spokeswoman for Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport said curbside check-in service is unavailable, but travelers can still check in inside the terminal.

Check your flight status by logging onto cvgairport.com and then be sure to double check by calling 1-888-750-3284.

If your flight is canceled or significantly delayed, you are entitled to a refund, Delta officials said.

You must re-book or ask for the refund on or before Friday.
