BREAKING: Plane crash in Buffalo (genghis)

FNC is saying 49 fatalities so far. Updates as more info. comes in.

More: Benson and Hmmm provide some more info. in the comments, which I'll tack on up here as a common repository. What we know so far:

It was Continental Flight 3407 (operated under Colgan Air), from Newark to Buffalo (a commuter flight). A 74-seat Bombardier Q-400.

It crashed into a home in Clarence Center, NY (a Buffalo suburb) at around 10:10 p.m. (Eastern time), on Long Road (or Street)

Some contact numbers:

1 800 621-3263 (the number for families) (FNC is saying the last 4 digits are 3236) Update: FNC is wrong...it's the first number.
713 324-5080 (number for the media to call)
716 741-8930 (number for Clarence residents only)

One person on the ground killed and others injured.

Local live coverage: here. (WIVB - local CBS affiliate)

Recording of ATC communication is here. (Thanks to Doc for the link)

Non-Update Update: Kudos to everyone who put up links early on when this was breaking. If you have any info. you think might be worth adding to the main post please post it in the comments, send it to xgenghisx@gmail.com or both. If you had a relative or friend on the flight, my condolences. If possible, please keep the off topic comments out of this thread. Just seems disrespectful. Maybe post them in the "Top Headlines" comments tonight. Thanks.
