Displaced Puerto Ricans Wondering Where They'll Go If FEMA Help Ends

Hundreds of Puerto Rican families that are currently displaced from their homes following Hurricane Maria and are in Florida and elsewhere are still waiting to find out how long they'll be able to stay in hotel rooms provided by Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). 

The original deadline of last Saturday was extended until this Thursday by a last-minute order from a federal judge. 

On Monday, attorneys for the Puerto Ricans asked another federal judge to extend the Transitional Sheltering Assistance program by one more month. 

Attorneys for the federal government argued that the families had been given ample notice of the June 30th deadline.
