(Newser) – Amid today's frigid weather, a Delta plane slid off a runway at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, shutting the airport down for the morning. The regional flight from Toronto had just landed safely, reports ABC, when it skidded into a snowbank. No injuries have been reported; 35 people were aboard. LaGuardia is also closed due to icy conditions. Both airports are expected to re-open around 11:30am.
