Editor's Note: A previous version of this article included a link for residents to apply for FEMA disaster assistance. Our reporting has since been updated to include that California’s request for a Presidential Major Disaster Declaration included Public Assistance for rebuilding critical public infrastructure but does not include Individual Assistance.
Many Coachella Valley residents who were impacted by Tropical Storm Hilary were awoken with the news of President Biden's approval of a Major Disaster Declaration on Wednesday.
The storm caused an estimated $126 million in damage in Riverside County.
