: Hope our mechanic doesn't find any damage.
: For the future in case this is what she does.
: Don't turn the steering wheel to either side end stop and continue to ask the pump to provide PSI.
: That balloons the hose and shortens it's life.
: There is supposed to be a PSI safety relief valve, but it's not a for sure safety.

It was a metal hose that burst not a rubber one. Not sure what hose/pipe that would be but it did contain power steering fluid and the resevior was now empty. I did not see any rubber hose near the metal pipe as it was under the car and up against the floor pan.
