The power is back, but the problems aren't over for thousands of San Gabriel Valley residents hit by last week's powerful windstorm.

Rain is coming, which is leading to new flooding concerns. Some homes are still damaged with just tarps covering holes in the roof.

California Emergency Management officials say they're looking for help at the federal level, because they still have to pay for previously declared disasters up and down the state. So those dealing with this storm may have to rely on federal assistance.

"It's hard to determine how far the insurance will go," said Pasadena resident David Reaume. "So you kind of have a guess factor. But there is definitely enough damage out there that the insurance company does not want to take care of all of it."

A team with the Federal Emergency Management Agency is scheduled to tour damaged areas of the San Gabriel Valley on Monday.

Meanwhile, debris drop-off events continue for residents in unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County ravaged by the winds.

Residents are urged to call their local waste hauler prior to utilizing the service for instructions on how to prepare their debris. Proof of residency will be required.
