ATLANTA, Ga. -- Delta Airlines' ground stop has been lifted, and limited departures are resuming after a power outage in Atlanta impacted flights worldwide.

Delta said in an update Monday morning:

"Customers heading to the airport should expect delays and cancellations. While inquiries are high and wait times are long, our customer service agents are doing everything they can to assist. There may also be some lag time in the display of accurate flight status at delta.com, the Fly Delta App and from Delta representatives on the phone and in airport."

Delta Airlines previously grounded flights scheduled to leave Monday after experiencing unspecified systems issues.

**Delta is offering this waiver for affected customers traveling on Aug. 8 through Aug. 12**

Long lines were forming at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport Monday morning.

Delta posted the following on Facebook:

"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. 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."
