    Several Hurricane Irma victims called a 1-800 number for help and were offered phone sex instead of hurricane relief assistance.

    The Miami Herald reported that the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Region 4 office accidentally tweeted the number Wednesday, which offered assistance to people dealing with damaged roofs.

    The number was supposed to be a “1-888” number, not a “1-800” number.

    “Welcome to America’s hottest talk line. Guys, hot ladies are waiting to talk to you. Press ‘1’ to connect, free, now,” said the recording of the 1-800 number.

    The original tweet has since been deleted and reposted with the right number.

    Irma was an extremely powerful and catastrophic Cape Verde-type hurricane, the strongest observed in the Atlantic since Wilma in 2005 in terms of maximum sustained winds.


    i can imagine one of the conversations...

    After calling hotline : "It's really blowing out there. Really hard. Everything is just getting so wet here. I really need someone to give me a hand. Do you have some one can come over?"
