At least 30 people suffered minor injures on a Turkish Airlines flight that encountered severe turbulence before it landed Saturday at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, the NY fire department and Port Authority said.

Spokesman Steve Coleman of the Port Authority of NY and New Jersey says 10 passengers were taken to a hospital.

Four people were hospitalized, one with a broken leg The majority of the 29 passengers injured were treated for bumps and bruises in the terminal.

The turbulence is believed to have hit the flight 45 minutes before it landed, and resulted in passengers and flight attendants being thrown into the air and around the cabin.

A New York Fire Department spokesman said they dealt with "32 passengers with non-life threatening injuries at JFK".

Eighteen of the injured passengers taken to the hospital were discharged after treatment, and 10 were still under medical observation as a precautionary measure, the state-owned airline posted on its website.

"Nobody announced it or anything like that so we figured out something was wrong", Sead Nikaj, a passenger on the plane, told ABC News.

"Then seeing blood all over".

The flight was on a Boeing 777.

The airline didn't immediately respond to request for comment.

The National Weather Service's Aviation Weather Center had issued warnings for pilots flying over parts of America's east coast.

It was the second incident at a major New York-area airport on Saturday.
