PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A Southwest Airlines spokesperson says a computer problem that at one point grounded nearly all of their planes has been resolved.

They say the problem with their internal system started around 8 p.m. and was back up just after 11 p.m. Friday.

So far, the airline hasn't confirmed exactly how many flights were grounded in Portland. Nearly every plane scheduled to take off after 8 p.m. was affected.

Flights already in the air were landing as scheduled.
