Seven southern California cities are asking the state for funding to help cover the costs of damage from last November's devastating windstorm.

The mayors from Pasadena, Arcadia, La Canada Flintridge and four other cities estimate costs of at least $40 million. That estimate includes emergency response and clean up from the storm.

The damage, however, does not qualify for federal disaster reimbursements.
