Some of the lights are out at the Westchester County Airport Wednesday afternoon.

Inside the airport, many of the florescent lights were off and the escalators were not working. However, travelers continue to arrive and depart inside the airport today.

County officials say the power went out at the airport about an hour ago and a backup generator was turned on. Also, noting that flight travel will not be affected.

"It happens, you live with it," says Bridgeport CT traveler Malcolm Kennedy.

According to the county, Con Edison is working to turn the lights back on at the airport and get things moving.
