Fire officials said Tuesday they had made tremendous progress as emergency
crews searched the partially collapsed Centergy parking garage in Midtown.
Engineers and crews worked furiously to make the structure safe for rescue
personnel.

Search dogs were brought in Monday night but found no evidence of any
victims in the rubble. Tow trucks were beginning to remove some of
vehicles from the six-story deck.

The area resembled a makeshift construction site Tuesday morning as
carpenters cut 4-by-4 posts, which firefighters carried into the structure
to erect shorings capable of supporting 120,000 pounds apiece.

Woodworth said that the search operations had continued throughout the
night using cadaver-sniffing dogs as well as live-victim dogs.

Weve had dogs run through the rubble pile twice, he said. At this time, we
have not had any hits from the dogs. However, due to the depth of the
pile, we will continue to run the dogs through.

Crews were also using cameras mounted on long poles to look for victims,
Woodworth said. As we clear some [rubble], theyre getting the cameras down
into the cars. He said there were 80 emergency personnel working the
scene.

Tow trucks were slowly removing some cars from areas of the six-story
garage that were deemed stable. Cars that were in danger of falling were
being secured with ropes. Any cars that cant be towed out will be removed
by crane, Woodworth said.
