LA County Taking First Steps Toward Recovery After Winter Storms

Los Angeles County is preparing to begin the initial activities to support residents with their individual recovery efforts following the recent storms. Identifying recovery activities is a critical step in setting a solid roadmap for how our residents, jurisdictions, and County get back to normal after any disaster.

“As we begin the recovery process, Los Angeles County is here to support the renters, homeowners, and businesses impacted by the storm,” said Lindsey P. Horvath, Chair of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. “No one is alone in navigating this process, and the County is here to help ensure our communities are connected to the resources they need. We came together to stay safe, and we’ll do the same through our recovery process.” The first step in the process is for individuals and businesses to complete a survey to answer preliminary questions regarding any damage that was sustained from the recent storms. The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) will work directly with the County’s 88 cities to analyze this information and validate what is reported.

This survey is intended for information gathering purposes and will be used to determine if the County is eligible for various disaster assistance programs based on the total amount of damages reported Countywide. Disaster assistance programs are not guaranteed, so residents and businesses are encouraged to contine working with their insurance carriers while this information is collected. The public can access the Damage Collection Survey at The County’s Recovery page for the 2024 storms will serve as a resource library for all post-disaster information. Residents are encouraged to visit the website regularly for the most upto-date information regarding recovery activities. For assistance in completing the survey, residents can call 2-1-1.
