NY airport terminal flooded as brutal cold grips US East Coast

The New York Port Authority said the problems are due to a surge in flights produced by the rescheduling of flights, WABC reported.

Both planes sustained damage but no passengers on the Kuwait-bound flight were injured.

Extreme cold and ongoing recovery from Thursday's brutal winter storm that snarled air traffic to the airport "created a cascading series of issues for the airlines and terminal operators over the weekend", the Port Authority of NY and New Jersey, which manages the airport, said in a statement earlier Sunday.

Overall, 143 flights were cancelled due to the water main break.

The Port Authority said in its statement Sunday that airlines "remain in recovery mode, rebooking passengers from canceled flights and reuniting passengers with their luggage".

"They should have been way better prepared, plain and simple", he said.
