NEW ORLEANS - The Federal Emergency Management Agency has come up with $103,000 to help replace contents of the Orleans Parish Criminal District Court damaged during Hurricane Katrina.

Following the 2005 storm, the basement of the courthouse flooded, destroying the contents of court offices, including the Judicial Administration Office which handles administrative functions required for the court to operate.

FEMA announced on Monday that the contents to be replaced include computer equipment and two-way radios, as well as drug testing equipment.
