Transcript

After any major disaster, survivors can find recovery extremely difficult. In addition to basics like food, clothing and shelter, crucial documents may be missing: driver licenses, insurance papers, birth certificates.

San Diego County has set up a local assistance center in the Alpine Library, 1752 Alpine Blvd., a one-stop shop with help for those who need it.
