NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Federal Emergency Management Agency says New Orleans' Municipal Auditorium will get more than $3.5 million in aid to help repair damage from Hurricane Katrina.

The auditorium, a component of the New Orleans Cultural Center, had a 6,000-seat capacity before the 2005 storm.

FEMA says it reevaluated the auditorium's damage and determined that more funding was needed for roof repairs, asbestos abatement and remediation of lead-based paint.

FEMA already had approved money for other storm-related damage in the auditorium's basement through fifth floors.
