Atlantic City casino to take in hurricane evacuees for free
An Atlantic City casino owner says he'll take in people fleeing Hurricane Florence.
Bruce Deifik said anyone fleeing the storm can stay for free at his Ocean Resort Casino.
People must show identification proving that they live in an area endangered by the storm.
"It's the right thing to do," he said.
"We've got plenty of rooms and we'll let people stay until the storm has passed."
All reasonable requests for shelter will be accepted as long as rooms remain, he added.
The casino hotel has 1,399 rooms.
