There were no injuries, the damage to the aircraft needs to be assessed.

The airline reported the flight suffered a runway excursion due to bad weather. All passengers and crew disembarked safely.

The main runway reopened after the aircraft had been removed from the runway about 12 hours after the runway excursion.
