This is all over the local news. Long-term recovery is going to be extremely challenging.

Part of the briefing as pilot in command of a small airplane like that is discussion of propeller dangers. And commonly, people remain seated until engine(s) are shut down. I'm guessing the pilot is going to share in the blame.

I remember flying with my father in a variety of small aircraft when I was younger, and I always remember him yelling "CLEAR!" out the (open) window before he engaged the starter; I don't know if that's still SOP when operating a small aircraft. I also remember we weren't allowed to open the door upon parking until AFTER the propeller(s) had stopped turning.
