Airplane skids off runway while trying to land in heavy rain

Southwest 737 Overruns Runway

The flight, traveling from Oakland, California, to Hollywood Burbank Airport, landed at 9:03 a.m. PST in the rain, according to NBC Investigations reporter Andrew Blankstein.

Southwest temporarily suspended operations at the airport, with 20 departures canceled so far. No injuries have been reported among the 112 passengers and five crew members onboard.

The airline is refunding the cost of the passengers' roundtrip airfare and rebooking trips for those with connecting flights, a Southwest Airlines spokesperson said. METAR reports for BUR from immediately before and after the incident indicate the airport was experiencing heavy rains and mist.

In the aftermath of the incident, the FAA implemented a temporary ground stop for Burbank flights departing from airports within about a three-hour flying distance of Burbank, Gregor said.

Police arrest protesters in Paris, turn others away
Philippe on Friday evening met a delegation of self-described "moderate" yellow vests who urged people not to join the protests. The Nicolas wine chain, one of France's biggest retailers, canceled all its wine tasting sessions scheduled for Saturday.

Over six hours, the area received 1.66 inches of rain. Its monthly average is 2.4 inches.

The jet's skid was stopped thanks to a little-known safety system called Engineered Materials Arresting System.

Fortunately, the EMAS slowed the plane down and brought it to a stop before it could hit anything, which Blankenstein reported was exactly what the EMAS was supposed to do.

Six years earlier, a 737 went off the same runway, through a barrier, across a busy street (where it hit a car) and nearly hit a gas station.
