The flooding took out two thirds of the arrivals area of Terminal 4, including customs and immigration processing facility.

Terminal 4 arrivals at JFK Airport are now reopened after a water main break caused chaos and suspended worldwide arrivals.

JFK was one the parts of NY that saw record lows for January 7, including four degrees Fahrenheit (minus 15.5 degrees Celsius).

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.

CBS New York reports that no injuries were reported as authorities worked to isolate the broken main.

A water main break in Terminal 4 sent people fleeing in a partial evacuation and left bags and suitcases in water.

As of Sunday afternoon, almost 50 flights were cancelled and more than 300 flights were delayed arriving and departing the airport, according to flight tracking website FlightAware.

"What happened at JFK Airport is unacceptable, and travelers expect and deserve better", Port Authority Executive Director Rick Cotton said in a statement. The incident added to an already chaotic weekend at the airport as it struggled with delays after the city was hit by major winter storm.

Equipment froze and baggage handling was delayed, which was compounded by staff shortages and heavier than normal passenger loads, the Port Authority said. It's not clear how many flights have been affected but the departure board is a sea of red and yellow cancellations and delays.
