SouthWest Airlines plane skids off runway at Burbank airport

Southwest Airlines flight skids off runway in Burbank amid heavy rainfall

"Initial reports indicate that Southwest airlines flight 278 from Oakland to Burbank came to a stop at the end of a runway upon arrival into Burbank".

The EMAS consists of absorbing materials created to rapidly slow aircrafts if they travel beyond the runway.

There are no reported injuries.

The flight rolled off the end of the runway in Los Angeles County while landing at about 9 a.m. PT (12 p.m. ET), but was halted by the Engineered Material Arresting System, which is created to stop aircraft in the event one leaves the runway, according to the FAA.

An image of the scene shows passengers being helped off the plane by fire fighters and officials in yellow high-vis jackets.

A Southwest Airlines flight skidded off the runway during heavy rains at a California airport Thursday morning, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

"We were primed for something to happen", Colette Carlson said, adding that she couldn't see outside during landing because of water covering her window, but she could feel that the plane was heading towards the end of the runway. The area had heavy rain - up to a half inch in an hour at one point, and a flood advisory is in effect for Los Angeles County, where the airport is located, KTLA reported.

Passenger Moe Storch tweeted the Southwest plane from Oakland to Burbank appeared to hydroplane after it landed on the wet runway.

Flights from other airlines were continuing to depart from Burbank.

No one was injured in the incident that occurred about 9:05 a.m. local time.
