FedEx is delivering packages on Christmas Day, after severe weather across the southern U.S. delayed shipments that were supposed to arrive on Christmas Eve.

“FedEx is doing everything possible to get customer shipments delivered by Christmas in spite of slight delays due to heavier than planned last-minute shipment volumes and severe weather outbreaks in some areas of the U.S.,” FedEx spokeswoman Rae Lyn Rushing said in a statement, CNN reports.

The company is giving priority to residential deliveries on Friday, and kept all FedEx Express stores open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. CNN reports that FedEx was the target of angry customers on Twitter on Thursday, after many packages didn’t make it to their destination.
