Flight 278, a Boeing 737-700 that originated in Oakland, California, came to a stop after running through an area of crushable material created to bring an airplane to a halt, he said.

A Southwest Airlines plane has skidded off the runway during a rainstorm after landing at Los Angeles' Burbank Airport. "Customers deplaned the aircraft via air stairs, with no reported injuries among the 112 customers and five crew members", the carrier said in a statement.

Helicopter video from KTLA showed the plane had left scars in tile at the end of the runway where it came to a stop. The accident happened during a heavy downpour, the Los Angeles Times reported. "We must no longer be on the runway".

Passengers were seen evacuating from the aircraft via an inflatable slide shortly after.

The airline is refunding the cost of the passengers' roundtrip airfare and rebooking trips for those with connecting flights, a Southwest Airlines spokesperson said.

Around the time of the incident, visibility at the airport dropped to 1 mile.

The runway where the incident occurred is closed, but another runway is operational and the airport remains open, Burbank airport officials said.

The Federal Aviation Administration implemented a "groundstop" for Burbank for flights departing from airports within about a three-hour flying distance of Burbank.

Over six hours, the area received 1.66 inches of rain.
