Airplane skids off runway while trying to land in heavy rain

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.

In Show of Support, US Conducts Ukraine Fly-Over
Navy ships routinely sail in and out of the Black Sea, and under global rules are only allowed to stay in the waters for 21 days. In this case, Ukraine requested a flight and the USA agreed to conduct it over an uncontested portion of Ukraine territory.

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.
