— Travelers headed to Atlanta from

RDU International

can expect some delays this afternoon due to

security breaches at Atlanta's Hartsfield International airport

.

The breaches have led officials to close down Hartsfield, which is slowing departures there and delaying those arrivals at RDU.

RDU officials also expect there to be delays in flights departing for Hartsfield.

They advise travelers to contact the airlines for information about specific flights.

There are typically 13 flights per day between the airports.
