FAA: Storm causes problems at Phoenix’s airport

PHOENIX — A fast-moving thunderstorm caused some flight delays at Phoenix
Sky Harbor International Airport due to windshear conditions.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says several planes were
diverted from Sky Harbor on Friday evening and others had to do go-arounds
before landing.

The storm struck parts of Maricopa and Pinal counties before sundown and caused
power outages to about 1,100 Salt River Project customers.

SRP officials say the outages are parts of Phoenix and Mesa and crews hoped to
restore power within a few hours.
