Need a one-way ticket home? free?

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Hurricane evacuees and their dependents still in Texas shelters, hotels and motels who wish to relocate have until Dec. 31st to get a free one-way ticket.

The offer from the Federal Emergency Management Agency applies to evacuees from Katrina and Rita. One-way plane, train or bus tickets are available.

Travel is restricted to the 48 states in the continental United States. Katrina made landfall on Aug. 29, slamming parts of the Gulf coast and swamping New Orleans. Rita came ashore Sept, 24 near Sabine Pass.

Officials estimate more than 50,000 evacuees are still in Texas hotels and motels, facing an updated January seventh deadline for FEMA to continue paying those housing costs. To apply, call: 1-800-621-FEMA.
