Vice presidential candidate Mike Pence's plane skidded off a runway at LaGuardia Airport in New York City Thursday night amid heavy rain.

Pence was arriving to New York City from Iowa.

No injuries were reported.

Despite the incident, Pence said he planned to be back on the trail campaigning on Friday.

In a photo posted by CNN video producer Elizabeth Landers, the damage to the LaGuardia runway looked extensive.

Just a few hours prior, Landers had posted a video of Pence playing some football with staff in front of the plane while they waited because of delays at LaGuardia.

Presidential candidate Donald Trump called Pence and, according to CNN, “is very glad everyone onboard the plane is safe.”

Meanwhile, Trump's opponent Hillary Clinton tweeted that she was glad that Pence and everyone else on the flight was safe.

LaGuardia had reopened to limited air traffic as of 9:30 p.m. local time.

Anyone flying in or out of the airport should check with their airline for an update on their flight status.
