East County News Service


January 8, 2016 (San Diego's East County) - If you have damage from this week’s storms, the County wants to hear from you.  Even if you live in a city within the county, it’s important for the  County to  get a report on all damages countywide.


County officials ask that damages be reported, since they are adding up all the totals in hopes of getting a state or federal disaster declaration.  A disaster declaration means residents with damage could be eligible for financial help to clean up and rebuild.


To report damage, go to and click on the “El Nino 2016” link, where you will also find other resources to get help.

My property keeps eroding due to damages by the new Border Patrol Station here in Boulevard. Water rushes through my property like a small roaring creek. I can do nothing about it through the County or State because it is a Federal Problem. Congressman Juan Varges has not helped even though his staff tried to get the Corps of Engineers to admit that what they did when building the station they never took into consideration the damage of water run off from all the concrete and asphalt poured at the site. It is a travesty that I have to put up with this and it will only get worse over the years.
