    A JetBlue flight heading to Bermuda had to make an emergency landing in at Logan Airport in Boston after it was struck by lightning, according to state police.

    JetBlue Flight 1731 had left John F. Kennedy Airport in New York City on Monday morning when the pilot reported a possible lightning strike after the plane's radar went out around 9:30 a.m., about 15 miles outside of Boston.

    Massport says the plane landed at Logan at 9:44 a.m. without incident.

    No one was injured on board, state police said, which responded to support Massport's police and fire crews as the plane came in for landing.

    It's unclear how many passengers and crew were on the plane at the time; however, passengers will be accomodated on another flight to Bermuda as maintenance crews inspect the plane, according to JetBlue.
