This tragedy not only affected UPS workers and their families but really the whole neighborhood.

There was a large gathering of UPS workers, still in their uniforms, that emerged from a church on 17th Street that had been used as an evacuation center.

They assembled in the shade of a nearby gas station and were handed printed materials by officials before they dispersed.

The workers in that group did not talk to the media.

Waiting inside the crime scene tape were several family members who did not want to be interviewed. They did tell us they were still waiting to find out if their own loved ones were safe.

As it turns out, many of the survivors were led out the other side of the crime scene to a building where the red cross and the Salvation Army had set up services for them.
