Delta Air Lines passengers are experiencing a bit of turbulence Monday morning due to a system-wide computer failure.

At about 2:30 a.m., a power outage in Atlanta, Georgia, impacted the computer systems worldwide, which resulted in flight delays, Delta News Hub reports.

The release says that large-scale cancellations are expected throughout the day and the company is working to repair the issue.

Delta posted a waiver for customers traveling from Aug. 8 through Aug. 12 that states that they are entitled to a refund. The refund affects all Delta flights and rebooked travel must begin no later than Aug. 12.
