It has been a tough week for Los Angeles as we are still weathering the effects of the record-breaking storm, which began on Feb. 4 and caused widespread flooding, power outages and hundreds of landslides, wreaking havoc across communities. In all, about 16 buildings have been red tagged and 33 buildings were yellow tagged, along with over 500 fallen trees and nearly 1,200 reports of potholes.
I want to take a moment to thank Mayor Bass and our emergency crews for their swift response and real-time updates. From life-and-death rescue operations, which included saving 50 motorists from floodwaters, to clearing debris from over 1,500 catch basins, our leaders stood strong when our city was put to the ultimate test.
As the rains begin to dissipate, let us not let our guard down and continue to prepare ourselves, our families, and our communities for unprecedented occurrences that can happen in our day-to-day lives. If there are any residual issues related to the storm, including pothole repair or any other non-emergency needs, contact MyLA311 via the app or by telephone at 3-1-1.
A huge shout out to our City family, including members of our Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD), Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), Building & Safety, Bureau of Engineering, the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power (LADWP), Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) and the City of Los Angeles Department of Public Works.
While we are in the clear for now, the city continues with recovery efforts. For the most up-to-date information on emergency operations, visit emergency.lacity.gov. Refer to the image below for other important resources.
