Per the article on Reuters, there are currently 34,000 people have been displaced by the storm. Which is a good deal less than the victims of hurricane Katrina, but a tragedy nonetheless.
"Disaster survivors may be eligible to stay in hotel or motel lodging "for a limited period of time" and have the cost of the room and taxes covered by FEMA. Food and charges for telephones, room service and other amenities are not covered."
If you're wondering why there's a photo above of Louis CK with his hair in a side part, it's because we were reminded of a skit we saw this weekend on Saturday Night Live. In it, Bobby Moynihan attempts to check out of his hotel, only to be bombarded with a neverending list of additional charges added onto his bill at the last minute.
At one point, the Front Desk clerk (played by Louis CK) even lists a $119,000 entertainment center charge. We had to chuckle. Though that number is absurdly high, we're no strangers to pesky fees jacking up our hotel bill when we least expect it!
