Some Katrina families turned out of hotels

FEMA begins cutting off money

More than 4,500 Hurricane Katrina evacuees checked out of their government-paid hotel rooms Tuesday as the Federal Emergency Management Agency began cutting off money to pay for their stays. More than 20,000 storm victims were given extensions by FEMA until at least next week and possibly until March 1, said an agency spokesman. The Baltimore Sun has details.
