Terminal at San Jose airport shut down after flood

Posted: Updated:

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — A terminal at Mineta San Jose International Airport has been shut down after it was flooded with several inches of water when a pipe burst.

Airport spokeswoman Rosemary Barnes says a hot water line ruptured in Terminal A around 2:15 a.m. Monday.

She says there is standing water in the "skybridge" section, which connects the parking garage to the security area.

KGO-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1dG7sFP ) the flow of water was stopped within about two hours but crews are still mopping up and making repairs.

All airlines that operate out of the terminal are impacted. They include American, Delta, JetBlue, United, U.S. Airways, Virgin American and Volaris.

Barnes says passengers can check in at airline counters and then will be taken to Terminal B on shuttle buses for security screening.
