According to media reports, there were no reported injuries among the 112 passengers and five crew.

At the time of the incident visibility at the airport reportedly dropped to one mile amid the heavy rain.

Flight 278, a Boeing 737-700 that originated in Oakland, was landing in Burbank shortly after 9 a.m. when it slid off the runway and came to a stop after hitting a barrier created to catch airplanes that leave the runway, according to an FAA spokesman.

Another image from the side of the plane shows one of the wings severely damaged as a result of the crash.

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

In a reply on Twitter that has since been deleted, Southwest said: "We have some really great pilots who ensure the safety of our customers!"

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

A Southwest Airlines plane has skidded off the runway during a rainstorm after landing at Los Angeles' Burbank Airport. Southwest tweeted the airline will refund the passengers ticket costs and will make an "additional gesture of goodwill".

At about 3:45 p.m., Southwest said it had resumed normal operations out for Burbank. It was raining heavily in the area at the time.

The FAA added the airport remains open and that flights to and from Burbank are fully operational.
