The City is offering emergency assistance financial aid for food, and if you can convince the bureaucrats, medicine, due to the storm. Click here for the online application or call 311.
Many of the City's recovery centres are still open if you are in need of water, a shower, a phone charging, or someplace else. These centres are open today until 10 pm.
Nine organic waste bins have been set up around the City where you can dump spoiled food.
