    A water main break halted the flow of water to William P. Hobby Airport in Houston for about five hours but did not affect flights.

    According to the airport website, crews restored water service to the airport about 4 p.m. Tuesday. That was five hours after the main break at a construction site near the airport.

    While the water to the airport was out, travelers were offered fewer food options but restrooms remained available because of another water source. Bottled water was distributed to travelers.

    Hobby Airport is part of the Houston Airport System, which includes Bush Intercontinental Airport, and served more than 11 million passengers last year.
