NEW YORK (AP) - Frantic families have been anxiously waiting to make sure their loved ones were not in two buildings that have collapsed in upper Manhattan.

An explosion Wednesday morning leveled the structures, killing two people and injuring 18 others. Officials say a number of people are still missing.

One woman, Lenore Lovejoy, was looking for word on her cousin and another relative.

Another woman begged for help as she tried to find out whether the building where her daughter had just moved into was among the collapsed structures.
