A series of strong storm systems swept through Los Angeles County between Wednesday, January 18, 2017 and Monday, January 23, 2017 bringing record amounts of rain throughout the area.

With about two months of the winter season remaining, it is important residents become familiar with a process the LA County’s Office of Emergency Management conducts to report property damages caused by the recent storms.  Los Angeles County would like residents to take action by reporting how much damage was sustained at their homes by completing a survey.

Los Angeles County residents, renters, and business owners, including persons with disabilities and others with access and functional needs, may call 211 LA County for emergency preparedness information, and other referral services.
