Small Plane Crashes Into Home in Conn.

A small plane crashed into a home in East Haven, Conn., around 11:25 a.m. EDT Friday.

At the time of the crash, there was a line of showers and thunderstorms between Teeterboro, N.Y., and New Haven, Conn.

"It looks like there was a gusty, heavy shower in the approach to the runway," AccuWeather Expert Senior Meteorologist Henry Margusity said.

A wind gust of 21 mph was recorded at Tweed-New Haven Airport at 11:26 a.m. EDT Friday with light rain and a visibility of 9 miles. In any heavier showers or thunderstorms nearby, the visibility could have been much lower.

The Associated Press reports that three people, including two children who were inside the home that was hit, are missing.
