The Nantucket Memorial Airport's fuel farm is back up and running after over 18 hours of being offline. Assistant airport manager Noah Karberg said the problem was with the main control board, which needed to be replaced following lightning strikes on Saturday.

"Jet-A and 100 LL are available for sale without restriction," the airport said in a tweet Sunday morning.

Karberg said the airport would lose approximately $7,000 per hour as long as this problem continued. The airport had been advising aircraft coming to and from the airport to tanker, which means to bring in the extra fuel they need in order to get to their next destination.

"The problem we are having is that we are unable to pump from the farm to our mobile refuelers, which are the 5,000 gallon trucks we drive around to get the fuel to the aircraft," Karberg said on Saturday.
