WOODBURY - Long Island residents with family in Egypt are anxiously awaiting word on whether their loved ones are safe.

Ihab Ibrahim, of Woodbury, says he's fearful for his parents' lives. Ibrahim says they are hunkered down in their second home in their native Cairo, where they take an annual vacation. Ibrahim says he has no idea when they'll be able to come home.

"We heard a couple of gunshots in the background," he says. "That doesn't settle very well."
