RICHMOND, Va. - The Federal Emergency Management Agency is giving $3.8 million to the Louisa County School Board to pay for school construction and other costs related to damage caused by an earthquake last year.

U.S. Sens. Mark Warner and Jim Webb announced the grant on Monday.

FEMA previously awarded $19 million to help rebuild Louisa County High School and $3.2 million to help rebuild Thomas Jefferson Elementary School, which were both damaged severely during the Aug. 23 earthquake.
