There are few places to rest inside the terminals and there were reports some passengers passed out due to exhaustion and dehydration while they waited.

There was still no word late Saturday as to when the problem would be corrected. A duty manager at the airport said they were going to bring water to affected passengers and were working with emergency officials to take care of those who were feeling light headed.
