Greenwood, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - Hundreds of people gathered Sunday evening for a vigil, held for the victims of the Greenwood explosion.

Second grade teacher at Southwest Elementary School, Jennifer Longworth and her husband, John died in their Richmond Hill sub-division home.

The Greenwood Schools superintendent had schools open two-hours late, Monday morning so staff members could prepare for how they would talk with students about what happened.

"How do you say something to the kids, how do you explain that to them. They're 7-years-old, and for them to lose someone so close to their heart. It's such a horrible, horrible way."

200 people are currently displaced from their homes and the investigation into an exact cause of the explosion continues.
