The federally funded shelter program that puts up Hurricane Sandy victims in hotels is being extended to May 1.

It is welcome news for those displaced from their homes since the storm.

FEMA agreed to extend the Transitional Sheltering Assistance Program for 17 more days.

"Sandy" Retired From Storm Names List

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is retiring the name "Sandy" from its list of names for storms.

Officials say the deadly hurricane caused such extensive damage that it will never again be used.

Currently, storm names are recycled every six years.

The agency retired the name "Katrina" following the deadly 2005 hurricane.

According to the National Hurricane Center, 72 deaths from Maryland to New Hampshire were attributed to Sandy.
