LOS ANGELES : Riordan Seeks Extension for Quake Aid Requests

October 01, 1994

Saying he worries that many earthquake victims are only now discovering the true extent of damage to their property, Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan on Friday requested that the deadline to seek federal aid be extended from Oct. 17 to Jan. 17, the first anniversary of the deadly temblor.

Riordan asked the Governor's Office of Emergency Services to request the extension from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Small Business Administration.

As of this week, FEMA and SBA had received 634,852 requests for assistance, according to officials. The SBA has received 212,722 loan requests and approved 105,492 applications for loans totaling $3.4 billion. An SBA spokesman said his agency is still receiving 200 to 300 loan applications per day.
