A Delta flight had to be evacuated after the plane slid on the runway and crashed into a gate at LaGuardia Airport in New York City.

WAFB has live coverage of that event right here.

A Port Authority spokesman says both runways at New York's LaGuardia airport are closed until further notice, after a plane arriving from Atlanta skidded off the runway and crashed through a chain-link fence.

Emergency responders are still assessing the conditions of the 125 passengers and five crew members who were on Delta Flight 1086, but fire officials say any injuries appear to be minor.

Passengers had to slide down an inflated chute and trudge through snow before being bused to a terminal. The National Transportation Safety Board is headed to the scene.
