Water Main Break Causes Suspension of Some International Arrivals to JFK Airport

International arrivals to one terminal at New York’s Kennedy Airport have been suspended following a water main break.

More delays have been added Sunday to the storm-related aftermath the already beleaguered airport is working to recover from.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says passengers who have already arrived are being taken to other terminals for processing. Departures were not impacted.

It was unclear what caused the water problem, which sent about 3 inches of it into the terminal’s west end. Video shows streams cascading from a ceiling and people slogging through pools of water.

The airport was experiencing arrival delays of more than two hours.

Following the storm, passengers were kept on planes and waited hours to retrieve luggage as flights were delayed and canceled.
