SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Flights at Mineta San Jose International Airport have been delayed and canceled after a pipe burst and flooded parts of a terminal.

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

Water flooded the baggage claim and security areas, forcing officials to shut them down. Passengers were being checked in at airline counters before being taken to Terminal B on shuttle buses for security screening.

Barnes said one checkpoint lane at the terminal reopened by 8:50 a.m., but screening was limited.

The flooding caused several flight delays and a few cancellations. The terminal serves carriers, including American, Delta, JetBlue, United, U.S. Airways, Virgin American and Volaris.

The cause of the rupture was under investigation.
