The Federal Aviation Administration says no injuries were reported during the landing Thursday as a powerful fall storm swept through the region.

Helicopter video from KTLA showed the plane had left scars in tile at the end of the runway where it came to a stop.

Passengers were seen evacuating from the aircraft via an inflatable slide shortly after. "I thought we were going to impact the barrier for sure".

Scott said he knew the plane had skidded off the runway when he saw mud splashing against the windows and the headlights from cars on the road behind the airport wall.

"It could have been a much grimmer circumstance", Carlson said.
