STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on the earthquake in Iraq and Iran

“I am heartbroken for the people of Iraq and Iran, where hundreds of lives were lost and thousands more were upended without warning by a catastrophic earthquake. This tragedy reminds us of the sudden, devastating impact that natural disasters can bring — and my heart is with the victims and their families today. I join all Angelenos in praying for and supporting our brothers and sisters in those countries as they rebuild their lives and communities.” — Mayor Eric Garcetti
