Newark Airport Control Tower Evacuated Due to Fire Alarm
Arriving flights from within the eastern half of the US are being delayed an average of one hour.
A fire forced air traffic controllers to evacuate the control tower at Newark Liberty Airport Friday evening, the FAA said.
All outbound flights are grounded as a temporary control center is set up in the airport’s Terminal C, according to WNBC. Inbound flights are being diverted to other airports.
