Assistance centers are opening in Los Angeles to provide in-person help to homeowners, renters and business owners affected by the powerful storms that hit Southern California earlier this month, city officials said Thursday.

The locations and hours of the centers are as follows:

  • Mid-Valley Senior Center
    Thursdays, noon to 8 p.m.
    8825 Kester Ave., Panorama City, CA 91402
  • South Los Angeles Sports Activity Center
    Friday, noon to 8 p.m.
    7020 S. Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 90003
  • Pan Pacific Senior Center
    Saturday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
    141 S. Gardner St., Los Angeles, CA 90036

“Our recovery began the moment the storm hit,” Mayor Karen Bass said in a statement. “I hope Angelenos will join us in spreading the word about these centers so Angelenos are aware of this important assistance opportunity.”

The centers are being offered as forecasts show another storm heading into the region’s Presidents Day weekend, raising concerns about the possibility of more flooding or landslides in already flooded areas.

During the latest round of storms, about 14 inches of rain fell in the mountain regions of Los Angeles, according to the National Weather Service. Downtown Los Angeles received 8.66 inches over a four-day period, representing more than 60% of its average annual precipitation.

The deluge caused mudslides, damage to homes and road closures throughout California. Nine people died in the massive storm.
