The company had extra manpower step in to help with deliveries, especially over the weekend, as more than 900 managers from across the nation were brought in to North Texas to help with loading, unloading and coordinating deliveries.

There are about 8,000 regular UPS workers in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, along with about 2,600 seasonal employees. They were out making deliveries Monday and will continue to do so Tuesday.

Many viewers on the FOX 4 Facebook page said they still waiting and hoping some packages will arrive before Christmas morning.

"Still waiting on two packages! I don't have high hopes," said Sherry Porter Carpenter.

Sharon Stephens said she is waiting on about 13 items to be delivered. They are just about all her kids' Christmas gifts.

"I ordered my items on Cyber Monday and won't be getting it 'til Thursday of this week," said Patricia Lozano.

UPS asks anyone with a package or packages in question to go to their website,
