(NEW YORK) — The cold weather has slowed travel in the New York City area.

A ground stop at John F. Kennedy International Airport was in effect for about two hours Sunday morning due to icy conditions.

Before the closure, a Delta plane had skidded off a JFK runway and into a snow bank. According to the Port Authority, the plane landed safely and no injuries were reported, but JFK temporarily closed so crews could salt and sand the runways.

The airport closed at about 8:30 a.m. and reopened just before 10:30 a.m. Sunday.
