VIRGINIA BEACH--The Red Cross opened up a shelter Friday night for people affected by the jet crash. 

"Well starting last night we had a shelter open where we had a service center where we met with all residents.  We took care of approximately 23 people,"  said Rob Shapiro of the Red Cross.

The tail and engines were still simmering as of early Saturday morning.  It was still an emotional time for Earl Mawyer, manager of Mayfair Mews Apartment. 

"I feel very worn out I feel very blessed.  Very thankful that each and everyone of my tenants were safe.  It's a miracle that they all walked away.  I am very grateful," he said.

Residents accept the fact that it will still be a week or more before they can even think about returning. 

"At least, oh yeah.  We'll they got to do their investigation.  So there's a lot of investigation that's got to go on before they can actually remove anything that's there at this point,"  said Kevin Block.
