The airplane touched down on runway 31 about 1,500 feet from the threshold and the rain become extremely heavy at that point. The pilot deployed thrust reverser and applied brakes. He felt the airplane was not slowing down, believing the airplane's tire was hydroplaning on the runway surface due to the amount of rain falling, and elected to perform a go-around. He closed the thrust reverser and advanced the throttles to increase engine power. The airplane did not accelerate. At this point, the pilot realized he was running out space on the runway and braced for impact. The airplane traveled past the end of the runway passing a section of grass and gravel area before crossing taxiway F. The nose and main gear sheared off from the fuselage at that point due to the step up to the taxiway from the grass area. The fuselage slid the remaining way on its belly and knocked down a chain link fence protecting a wild life reserve area for ground owls and turtles. The fuselage came to stop in a nose-high attitude on a sand embankment in front of a ditch.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The flight crew's decision to continue the approach into known area of potentially severe weather (Thunderstorm), which resulted in the flight encountering a 30 knot cross wind, heavy rain, low-level wind shear, and hydroplaning on a ungrooved contaminated runway."
