"There is a power outage near YVR affecting traffic lights, residences and some businesses on Sea Island," YVR said in a tweet. "We have power in our terminal buildings and airport operations are not currently impacted."

Power has been out in the area since 12:38 p.m. While crews are on-site, there is no estimated time for when power will be restored.

The cause of the outage is under investigation.
