REDDING, Calif. -

Monday marked four days since a massive water main break left 11 people displaced on Magnolia and Shasta Streets.

Apartments were drenched, some up to four feet last Friday morning.

Folks affected have been put up in the Marriott-Towne Suites on Larkspur.

KRCR News Channel 7 got a first hand look at one of the rooms.

Chris Hammond is staying in a king studio that can cost as much as $136 dollars per night. The room has a king sized bed, a kitchen and a refrigerator.

The city of Redding is picking up the tab along with a new Play Station 3, which Hammond said was destroyed by the flood. Hammond was also given $125 dollars last Friday for a week's worth of food expenses.

City officials say it could take up to two months to get displaced residents back into their apartments.
