March 9, 2023

The County of Santa Clara is collecting damage information for submission to the appropriate state and federal agencies. Take the survey today!

SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CALIF. – The Bay Area has been hit by a series of atmospheric rivers that have caused damages such as flooding, fallen trees, and mudslides across the region. To help community members recover from the storms that began March 9, 2023, the County of Santa Clara is collecting damage information from residents for submittal to the California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

Community members may self-report property damages by going to and completing the survey.

“The County continues to work toward recovering from the storms that have greatly impacted our county, particularly South County,” said Dana Reed, Director of the Office of Emergency Management. “We are working with our local and state partners to ensure that our community members are informed of the recovery resources and services that are available, including FEMA’s Individual Assistance Program. We encourage property owners and renters to submit damage surveys for the storms that began on March 9.”

FEMA’s Individual Assistance Program provides financial and direct services to eligible individuals and households affected by a disaster, who have uninsured or under-insured necessary expenses and serious needs. The Individual Assistance Program is not a substitute for insurance and cannot compensate for all losses. The collection of damage information is not a guarantee of financial assistance.
