Watching now, no idea how many on the flight yet, but plane seems intact, and they think it was a flock of birds.
One ferry is throwing life jackets to a wraft to bring to passengers.
3 cheers to the pilot!!!!!
Water landing preferable to land landing.

flightstats.com says that it's currently an 18 minute delay.

I am amazed that I get breaking news on DC.

Flipped over to the link on Drudge (CBS)

Hard to believe how dumb some reporters are:

"Temperatures at the time of the crash in the city were just about 20 degrees, with the water temperature likely much colder"

Sheesh!
