A chartered Delta Airlines jet skidded off the runway during stormy weather at Jacksonville Naval Air Station, a military spokeswoman said.

No one was injured, public information officer Miriam Gallet said, in The Associated Press.

The plane was carrying 167 passengers who were traveling from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The Boeing 737 slid into mud and skidded off the runway, AP said.

The Florida Times-Union reported the passengers were diverted to Jacksonville International Airport, and then they flew on to their final destination, in Norfolk, Va.

Ms. Gallet said investigators are conducting a review of the incident.
