Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
2-2-05 - TETERBORO, N.J. (AP) A plane crash in New Jersey has left at least 15 people hurt.
A corporate jet was trying to take off from Teterboro Airport when it skidded off the runway, crossed a highway during rush hour and barreled into a warehouse.
TV footage showed heavy smoke as fire crews sprayed foam on the twin-engine plane.
The plane hit at least one car when it hurtled across Route 46, which was then closed in both directions at the heart of morning rush hour.
A witness said the pilot crawled out of the wreckage and told him the crew lost control of the plane.
Teterboro is about a dozen miles from midtown Manhattan and is a popular small airport for business and celebrity travelers trying to avoid downtown.
Federal aviation officials say the jet's registered to Four-Four-Eight Alliance of Dallas, which shares the same address as DDH Aviation.
DDH president Dennis Debo declined immediate comment.
