    Flights heading to South Florida airports were grounded for about an hour Wednesday morning due to a computer problem at the FAA's Miami Air Route Traffic Control Center, officials said.

    The groundings began around 8 a.m. and were lifted around 9 a.m., FAA spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said in a statement.

    Planes that were already in the air were allowed to land.

    The control center handles high altitude flights in airspace which extends south of Orlando and over the Caribbean, Bergen said.
