Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - World -

NEW YORK -- A water pipe break in one of the ter­mi­nals at New York's Kennedy Air­port on Sun­day added to the de­lays at the be­lea­guered air­port try­ing to re­cover from the af­ter­math of a snow­storm that has stranded thou­sands of pas­sen­gers.

In a state­ment, the Port Author­ity of New York and New Jer­sey said a water pipe that feeds a sprin­kler sys­tem in the pri­vately op­er­ated Ter­mi­nal 4 broke at about 2 p.m., caus­ing water to flood the ter­mi­nal and sig­nif­i­cantly dis­rupt op­er­a­tions.

"What hap­pened at JFK Air­port is un­ac­cept­able, and trav­el­ers ex­pect and de­serve bet­ter," said Port Author­ity Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Rick Cot­ton. "While the water pipe break that oc­curred ap­pears to be weather-re­lated, we have launched an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the in­ci­dent to de­ter­mine.
