A water main broke in a JFK International Airport terminal on Sunday, flooding a baggage claim area, according to CNN, adding to travellers' misfortunes at the airport this week.

The water main broke about 1:30 p.m. in Terminal 4, which was later evacuated and had to be shutdown to international flights,according to the airport and CNN.

A number of videos of water flowing from ceilings, down walls and about three of inches of water on the ground have since been posted to social media.

A JFK spokesperson told Business Insider that a frozen pipe caused the main to break, and that about three to four inches of water are on the ground.

The flooding has caused further delays and cancellations at JFK as New York City recovers from the "bomb cyclone" that hit the northeast last Thursday. Thousands of flights were cancelled because of the winter storm, leaving many travellers stranded at the airport for days.

Two planes also collided on JFK's tarmac on Saturday, according to NBC News 4 New York.

"They got to get their act together," one passenger told NBC.

Plane dangles off cliff after skidding off runway in Turkey .
A commercial airplane that skidded off a runway after landing in northern Turkey dangled precariously Sunday off a muddy cliff with its nose only a few feet from the Black Sea. Some of the 168 people on board the Boeing 737-800 described it as a "miracle" that everyone was evacuated safely from the plane, which went off a runway at Trabzon Airport.Images show the aircraft on its belly and perched at an acute angle just above the water. If it had slid any further along the slope, the plane would have likely plunged into the sea in the Turkish province of Trabzon.
