FEMA extends Sandy victims' hotel stays
Long Islanders forced from their homes by Hurricane Sandy are getting more time in their hotels.
FEMA has approved a 14-day extension to the Transitional Sheltering Assistance program, which will allow Sandy victims to stay in their hotels until Jan. 26.
FEMA says more than 2,000 hotel rooms are being rented statewide to Sandy victims. About 970 of those rooms are on Long Island.
