EAST HAVEN, Connecticut - Two bodies were found after a small plane crashed into two houses in East Haven, Connecticut, on Friday, and the death toll could rise, Governor Dannel Malloy said.

Emergency workers had "visuals" on two bodies in the basement of one of the houses, the governor told reporters at a press conference near the scene.Residents said later Friday afternoon that emergency workers removed two body bags on stretchers from the house.

The twin-engine propeller plane had taken off from New Jersey Friday morning and had been attempting to land at Tweed New Haven Airport, about 40 miles south of Hartford (67 km), in rainy weather when it crashed around 11:25 ET.

East Haven Deputy Fire Chief Tony Moscato said officials initially believed that at least three people, including a pilot and two children in one of the houses, were missing.

Emergency crews were not yet certain if there were other people on the plane with the pilot, and the destruction at the scene made the workers' job more difficult, the governor said.

"This is a disaster site," Malloy said. "There's a lot of damage."
