There were more headaches for travelers at one of the country’s busiest airports.
Following days of delays and cancellations due to record-breaking cold and a blizzard in the Northeast, a water main break burst inside New York’s J.F.K. International Airport on Sunday, flooding the terminal and forcing travelers to evacuate into the cold. International flights to the airport were temporarily suspended and passengers who had already arrived were diverted to other terminals. Equipment had to be shut down and passengers were unable to retrieve their luggage. Others were stuck waiting on planes for hours.
