The runway lights at Tulsa’s major airport fail again last night. It’s the second time this week, but Daniel Meier with Tulsa International says this time a staff electrician was on stand-by, just in case, so the problem was resolved in just a matter of minutes. He says the failure was traced to a new monitoring system.

Meier says no planes had to be diverted and any delays were minimal.
