Helpful Resources to Report and Recover From the Rains
updated February 21, 2024 at 2:20pm

For life threatening situations, always first call 9-1-1. To report an emergency road problem, call: 1-800-675-HELP.  To learn about public alert and warning systems offered in LA, including Alert LA, weather radios, and more, click here.  For anyone who incurred damage during the recent storms, you can take a survey, click here.
 
The LA County Assessor’s Office is here to help. Check out the County Emergency Preparedness website for helpful information.  For property owners who have experienced damage or destruction from these storms, they can apply to have the assessed value of their property – the value upon which their property taxes are based – reduced to reflect the damage. This property tax relief program is called the Misfortune & Calamity (M&C) program. By filing a claim for M&C relief within one year of the incident, properties that have sustained a minimum of $10,000 in damage of current market value may be eligible for a refund of taxes already paid as well as lower annual tax bills until the property is repaired or rebuilt.
