[BREAKING] PRESS CONFERENCE: Flood Survivors Getting Kicked Out of their Hotels on Valentines Day Hold a Press Conference Calling on the City to Provide Housing Now!

SAN DIEGO — Today, flood victims who are going to get kicked out of their hotels on Valentine’s Day are holding a press conference to call on the City and Mayor Todd Gloria to extend hotel vouchers to provide desperately needed housing for survivors. Flood survivors cannot return to their homes as they are uninhabitable from severe category 3 water damage caused by failed city infrastructure. Hundreds of survivors were given temporary hotel vouchers, but they expire tomorrow and unless Mayor Gloria works with the necessary agencies to extend adequate alternative housing, these victims will be turned out onto the streets. Their condition is dire and they are demanding the Mayor act now.

Who: Flood survivors being turned out on the streets

When: Tuesday, February 13th at 1:30PM

Where: Civic Concourse, in front of the City Administration Building - 202 C Street, San Diego 92101
