A plane carrying Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence skidded off a runway at New York's LaGuardia Airport Thursday night, the Associated Press reported. There were no reports of injuries.
"Moderate rain was falling this evening at LaGuardia," Accuweather Meteorologist Jordan Root said "Low-cloud ceilings and the rain caused lowered visibility as well."
The plane made a rough impact upon landing and passengers could smell burning rubber, according to the AP.
Pence was flying into New York City after campaigning in Iowa earlier Thursday. About 40 people were on board the plane.
"So thankful everyone on our plane is safe," Pence tweeted. "Grateful for our first responders [and] the concern [and] prayers of so many. Back on the trail tomorrow!"
