Rain assistance for homeowners

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The County Office of Emergency Services Monday asked residents affected by the storm to complete a short damage survey form that will assist the County in collecting damage information and associated costs from the weekend's heavy rains and flooding.

San Diego property owners may be eligible for Rain Recovery Assistance.

If insurance will not cover it, the county is taking the first steps to see if federal assistance will be available. 

San Diego County is also helping property or small business owners who sustained damage from the weekend's heavy rains and flooding, by estimating rain damages.

The information gathered from the surveys will be used to estimate total damages countywide and will determine if enough damage occurred to qualify the region for federal disaster assistance, such as low interest disaster loans from the Small Business Administration for those who are uninsured or underinsured.

Completing the form does not guarantee a disaster declaration, it is not a claim, and it is not a guarantee the property owner will be eligible to receive disaster assistance.

If your property was damaged by the storm and you need immediate assistance, please contact the following agencies:

American Red Cross: (858) ­414-­8051

Salvation Army: (619) ­231-­6000
