$4 housing for Hurricane Irma evacuees, but there's a catch

Residents in the possible path of Hurricane Irma seeking extremely budget-friendly shelter from the storm might like to know about this $4 per night offer in Atlanta.

If you're staying a while it's only $2 per night - a week's booking makes the guest eligible for a 50 percent discount.

There's one little catch, though. We're talking about a tent.

An enterprising Air BnB host has posted the listing, billed as an "evacuee camp in Atlanta." There's mention of a bathroom being available, but it's not clear if that means you can use the facilities in the host's house or if you're supposed to use nature as your restroom or what.

We'll skip posting the link. If you're an adventurous outdoorsperson and this sounds enticing, you'll find it easily enough.
