FAA computer problem causes delays across the US

The Federal Aviation Administration is reporting nationwide problems with its flight information computers this morning.

Right now, flights are being monitored manually, which may cause some delays. Air traffic controllers still have radar coverage and radio communication with planes, so flights are still able to takeoff and land.

For now, it looks like the most affected airports are Hartsfield Jackson Airport in Atlanta, Dallas Fort Worth Airport in Texas, Charlotte Douglas International Airport in North Carolina and New York City's LaGuardia airport.

FAA officials say, for now, to expect widespread flight delays across the U.S.

No word on any delays at Central Coast airports.
