MIAMI, FL (WCMH) — An erroneous tweet from a Federal Emergency Management Agency office led to victims of Hurricane Irma being offered an entirely different type of help.
According to the Miami Herald, the FEMA Region 4 office tweeted the number for a sex hotline on Wednesday, instead of a hotline where hurricane victims could get help dealing with damaged roofs.
The agency told victims to call 1-800-ROOF-BLU, instead of 1-888-ROOF-BLU.
“Welcome to America’s hottest talk line. Guys, hot ladies are waiting to talk to you,” said the hotline’s recorded message. “Press ‘1’ to connect, free, now.”
The original tweet has since been deleted and replaced with the correct phone number.
