Woman unable to retrieve clothing, critical medication from apartment after explosion
DUNWOODY, Ga. - A resident of the Dunwoody apartment complex that exploded on Sunday said her situation is dangerous in the days after the explosion because she's still not allowed back in her apartment.
The woman said she has been staying at her hotel because management will not let her back into her apartment.
She requested FOX 5 Atlanta keep her identity anonymous.

"It's frustrating and extremely hard," she said. "I wake up anxious constantly, not knowing what is going to happen day-to-day."
She said she can't get any of her belongings. She said she's been buying new clothes daily and also can't get the crucial medication she needs.
"They're telling me they need the fire department to escort me," she said. "Unfortunately, they're not here."
She said she's diabetic and, without her insulin, she could go into shock.
FOX 5 Atlanta reached out to Trinity Property Consultants, which manages the building, and is still waiting for a response.

Nearly 50 units were damaged in Sunday’s blast.
