FAA report: Flights at New York City's three major area airports are facing delays following the evacuation of the Federal Aviation Administration's radar facility, which handles all arrivals and departures.
FAA spokesman Jim Peters says the New York Terminal Radar Approach Control in Westbury was evacuated as a precaution after the smell of gas was reported at about 6:45 p.m. Wednesday. A handful of air traffic controllers remained behind.
He says other staff members were cleared to return about an hour later.
But he says the evacuation led to residual delays at LaGuardia, Kennedy and Newark airports. Source
