"We're still getting, believe it or not, a good number of applications from people who have legitimate disaster-related problems," said Frank Kishton, coordinating officer for the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Local residents who lost homes to landslides triggered by El Nino-driven storms could benefit from a plan being formulated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. FEMA officials said they are looking into a plan to buy out California victims of last winter's landslides, a program that could affect about 1,000 homeowners statewide. The plan, however, has not yet been approved by the state Office of Emergency Services, which would administer it.

Nine San Gabriel Valley cities will receive more than $1.5 million in state funds to assist residents whose homes were damaged in the Oct. 1 earthquake. "Ours is the funding of last resort," said Julie Stewart, spokeswoman for the state Department of Housing and Community Development. "It is for homeowners who were ineligible for federal funds or who did not receive enough federal money to repair the damage."
