I just saw on CNN that a small, tourist plane in route from Bulgaria to Rome, Italy has hit the 24th and 25th floors of a building in Milan. Italian TV reports that there have been many injured.
I will keep all involved in my prayers.

Just heard......this happened at 11:45am Eastern time.
An SOS call went in to controllers that there could possibly be a mechanical problem with the plane prior to it hitting the building.
There has already been one announced fatality.
The building is one of the world's tallest concrete buildings and is the tallest building in downtown Milan.
The first through seventh floors have been evacuated.
There are people believed to be trapped on the higher floors.
It is not believed to be a terroristic attack.
