(NEW YORK) — A number of flights are being delayed or canceled do to a computer outage in Washington, D.C.

Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport posted to Twitter on Saturday saying that the outage was impacting flights there, as well as at Reagan International Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport. Arrivals and departures, BWI says, are being kept “at a minimum.”

Delta Airlines told ABC News earlier Saturday that a problem with the automation system at D.C. air traffic control was affecting all of its flights into and out of airports in Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.

Flights bound for other airports in the northeast are also affected, including all New York City metropolitan area airports.
