More than $47 million in federal funding has been awarded to the cities of Biloxi and Bay St. Louis for hurricane-related repairs.

U.S. Sens. Roger Wicker and Thad Cochran, both R-Miss., said in a statement that the grants, administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, would go for repair to potable water, water distribution, and sewer collection systems in the two Gulf Coast cities. Funds will also be used to repair Bay St. Louis’ natural gas distribution system.
