NEW YORK (AP) — The agency that runs New York’s LaGuardia Airport says two runways have been reopened after Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence‘s campaign plane slid off a runway during a rainstorm.

The Port Authority of New York and Jersey said Friday that crews worked through the night to remove the plane.

It says travelers could still encounter some residual delays.

One of the runways reopened soon after the landing Thursday night. The other remained closed while the plane was being removed.

There were no injuries. The 37 passengers, including Pence, and 11 crew members were evacuated through the back of the plane.
