Amarillo, Texas - A packed auditorium brought further concerns and questions to be answered by El Paso natural gas officials.

Local residents gathered in the Bushland high school auditorium to hear what El Paso officials had to say.  Many residents across the town were rudely awakened and many evacuated from their homes the night of the explosion.  Some of those homes sustained damage.

Eddie Fuentes, who was evacuated from his home the night of the explosion says, "It was a valiant effort for them to show up and to be on stage for us to ask questions and address some of our concerns. I think some questions are still unanswered, maybe due to the investigation. But at the same time it's going to be a process and there's so many questions out there that might never be answered."

Most of the questions centered around safety and property values.
