The California Emergency Management Agency (Cal EMA) informed Los Angeles County’s Office of Emergency Management that Los Angeles’ operational area did not meet the threshold for assistance.

Mary Sanders with 211 LA County told KNX 1070 that officials are urging cities, school districts and unincorporated areas to be certain to report damage so they can see if the threshold can be met.

The public sector damage estimate stands at about $33 million.
