Al Jazeera reports:

A domestic TransAsia Airways plane crashed on landing on an island off the west coast of typhoon-hit Taiwan on Wednesday, killing 47 people, the Civil Aeronautics Administration said.

The plane, a 70-seat turboprop ATR Model 72, crashed near the runway with 54 passengers and four crew on board, it said.

Here's hoping that means there were a few survivors. Condolences to all.
