As cities and towns across Connecticut look to improve their coordination during emergencies, many are signing up for a system created by New Haven-based Grey Wall Software called VEOCI, or the Virtual Emergency Operations Center.
The deadly crash of a private plane into two East Haven homes earlier this month, killing two children in one home as well as the pilot and his son, is raising concerns from some residents of the neighborhood close to Tweed New Haven Regional Airport.
About 400 people gathered Saturday evening in a park in the heart of East Haven for a vigil to pray for the family of the two children killed on Friday when a small plane crashed into their house, about a half mile from Tweed New Haven Airport.
At least three people are believed dead after a small plane crashed into two houses at about 11:20 am on Friday in East Haven, Connecticut. Two bodies have been located so far. Mayor Joseph Maturo says two children were inside one of the houses. He says their mother was with them and she escaped unharmed. Maturo says the children's ages were around 13 and 1. The other home was unoccupied. Governor Dannel Malloy says 1 to 3 people were on the plane.
