CNN Money reports here on the power outage at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. This report indicates that backup power lines were in a tunnel adjacent to the main lines.

Limited circulation in the tunnel, combined with the dangerous fumes created by burning electrical equipment, delayed the entrance of personnel.
