Didn't have time to edit alot, since HOU is all on one feed

More than 70 flights have been cancelled at Hobby Airport following a small plane wreck that occurred at the travel hub on Friday morning.

The incident, which saw a small aircraft slide off a runway after landing at the airport, led to a full ground stop at Hobby Airport shortly after 12 p.m. No injuries were reported as a result of the off-kilter landing, and all six individuals aboard the craft were safely deplaned, according to a Houston Airports representative. At the time of this writing, grounds crew and maintenance staff have retrieved the vehicle and are working to repair the grassy interstitial where the plane went off track.

"The maintenance team is essentially filling in divots in grass to make sure that the airport safety area is up to federal code and there are no massive holes in it," a Houston Airports representative said.
