FEMA gives Louisa High School $19 million

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Thursday marked the sixth month anniversary since last summer's 5.8 magnitude earthquake in Louisa.

The school system found out Thursday it's getting $19 million from FEMA to help rebuild the high school.

Governor McDonnell's office says it won't cover all the re-building costs.

That's going to run about $43 million. Insurance and state and local funds will cover the part FEMA doesn't pay.

Earlier this month, FEMA announced it was giving $3.2 million to Louisa to help rebuild Thomas Jefferson Elementary School.
