A BOEING 737 has reportedly slid off a runway amid a snowstorm in Wisconsin. Nobody was injured in the incident.

Airport authorities have told WISC-TV Madison that they are “not aware of any injuries” on the Delta flight that slid off the runway at Dane County Regional Airport.
The plane was upright, Madison Fire Department spokeswoman Lori Wirth told local media.
She added that fire department crews remain at the site of the aircraft which had come to rest in a snowbank.
The incident involved Delta Flight 385 with 60 passengers aboard arriving from Minneapolis.
Dane County Regional Airport reports conditions at the time of the incident were of low visibility (little more than a kilometre) with light snow.
The local control tower has since declared that the runway has failed a “friction test” and has been closed.
