Busch Gardens is involved in pre-lawsuit mediation with Sultenfuss Inc., its SheiKra contractor. It incurred extra work to meet the amusement park's deadline, after delays were caused by four hurricanes last year. An attorney for the contractor expects the case to be settled out of court.

Unfortunately, the article doesn't give a specific amount involved. A well written contract would have been specific about what, if any, delay was acceptable, and under what circumstances.
With the limited information given, this is a tough one to call. Do you tell the contractor, tough, you knew what had to be done and when, and you signed a contract to that effect? Or do you say to Busch, hello there were 4 hurricanes fer pete's sake, you want it finished by a certain date, you should be willing to pay some overtime?
