“Hopefully we will have some answers soon,” the office said.
An area manager for FedEx responded to the scene, the sheriff’s office said, and the company “sent multiple trucks and drivers from all over the south” who were set to begin loading the packages at sunrise Thursday.
An update by the sheriff’s office Thursday morning said officials were “making a dent” in the cleanup and recovery effort.
“We are taking steps to recover and transport the affected packages as quickly as possible,” the statement said. “In addition to cooperating with law enforcement, we are conducting a review of this situation and will take the appropriate action.”
