There is a ground stop for a "disabled aircraft". A friend working out of SFO says there is a lot of rescue vehicle chatter on tower frequency.

Pray for everyone involved (pax, rescue, medical, etc) and for their families.

News reporting everyone is alive but injuries. Radar track seems to indicate a ballooned landing or botched go-around, as they gained 200 feet after touchdown.
