Three people were aboard the twin-engine Boeing 767 operated by Atlas Air Inc. when it went down before 12:45 p.m. CT, the FAA's Lynn Lunsford said.

Lunsford did not know the status of the people aboard and the Chambers County Sheriff's Office could not immediately be reached for comment.

Air-traffic controllers and the pilots on Atlas Flight 3591 could be heard discussing how to fly around a line of thunderstorms shortly before the crash, according to a recording of radio calls posted on the website LiveATC.net.

There are no survivors in the deadly crash, according to the Chambers County Sheriff's Office.
