BROOKLYN - Homeless Sandy victims, who were hours away from having their temporary housing subsidies expire, have been given an extension to stay in hotels.

Displaced tenants who are living at the Kings Inn on Atlantic Avenue received a letter from the Department of Homeless Services Saturday stating that the city would no longer pay for their current short-term hotel or housing as of April 30. The letter also stated that the city would move people who were eligible to shelters.

The state Supreme Court today issued an order to temporarily stop the city from discontinuing hotel subsidies.

Some tenants tell News 12 Brooklyn that they still believe they could be evicted at any moment.
