Delta Airlines Jet Skids Off The Runway In NYC

Reported just a few minutes ago, Delta Airlines flight 1086, an MD-80, from Atlanta to LaGuardia Airport skidded off the runway and into a fence.

Initial reports are that no injuries occurred and that the passengers were able to get off of the plane. Weather obviously played some roll in the incident which has closed the airport for the time being.
