Los Angeles County is asking residents who suffered recent storm damage to fill out a survey, as officials calculate totals to seek federal aid.

“It is important for residents and business owners to become familiar with the process used … to collect damage estimates caused by the recent storm,” said Leslie Luke, deputy director of the county’s Office of Emergency Management.

“This information will be used to determine if the county has enough damages to seek a federal declaration (of disaster) for assistance through the U.S. Small Business Administration,” he said.

The survey is online at a banner on the county’s website, www.211la.org. People can also dial 211 on their phones for assistance in filling out the forms.
