MORE ON SUPERSTORM SANDY

On January 25, FEMA issued a press release:

"NEW YORK – The Federal Emergency Management Agency, at the request of the State of New York, has approved a 30-day extension for survivors to register for federal disaster assistance. The new registration deadline for Hurricane Sandy survivors in New York is Feb. 27. FEMA also approved a 14-day extension to the Transitional Sheltering Assistance (TSA) program. The new checkout date for applicants staying in hotels under this program is Sunday, Feb. 10."

On Monday, I consulted with several homeowners who will still need TSA after February 10 as repairs have not even begun on their homes - disputes over insurance estimates, extent of damages, availability of workers, etc.
