Officials say San Diego city and county suffered at least $10 million in damage from last month's storms.
The City Council and the county Board of Supervisors declared states of emergency on Tuesday, a step toward seeking state and federal funding.
The storms downed trees, created potholes, flooded streets and damaged bridges, roads and railroad tracks.
Early estimates put the county's damage repair and cleanup costs at $4 million. The preliminary estimate for the city is $6 million, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
However, damage assessments continue.
More than $100 million in damages have been reported by other Central and Southern California counties.
