The Federal Aviation Administration has allocated $4.5 million to 12 airports to help them rebuild from the series of four hurricanes that hit the South and other parts of the U.S. earlier this year. The aid awards, announced Dec. 3, bring FAA's total hurricane relief aid to $25 million.
Work covered by the federal funds includes repairing or replacing terminal buildings and hangars.
In October, the agency allotted $20.5 million for hurricane-related repairs to 71 airports in Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Puerto Rico.
Florida airports received the largest share of the October FAA assistance, with $18.7 million. That includes: $3.3 million to Daytona Beach International, $2.1 million to Tampa International and $2 million each to Palm Beach International and Charlotte County Airport in Punta Gorda.
