On January 30, 2024, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors took new actions to help people in communities flooded by the January 22, 2024 torrential rains, including putting into place temporary additional tenant protection measures.

The ordinance also restricts certain rent increases on eligible properties from January 22 to March 30, 2024.
The flood affected areas specified in the ordinance include residential units located in the following ZIP codes:
