Recent storm systems brought record amounts of rain to Long Beach and the region, and more rain is forecast.

To help determine the impacts of the storms, Los Angeles County has established a website to gather basic damage information from residents and businesses. Long Beach residents and businesses that experienced damage are encouraged to complete the damage assessment survey, available at www.211LA.org by clicking on the Damage Assessment Survey banner.

Depending on the total losses in the region, residents and businesses may be eligible for low-interest, long-term disaster assistance loans. Even if damages are manageable or are covered by insurance, completing the survey will help other residents in the region.

The survey only collects basic damage information, and is not an application for assistance.

Long Beach residents, renters, and business owners, including persons with disabilities and others with access and functional needs, may get additional disaster preparedness information through the City’s Department of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Communication website at www.longbeach.gov/disasterpreparedness.
