Today, your donation to LAist will be matched dollar for dollar. Your tax-deductible gift that powers our reporters and keeps us independent will be felt twice as strong today, so don't delay!

LA City Council Member Eric Garcetti is providing a way to give support to the victims of the Metrolink tragedy.

He explains:

We have had a lot of people in the blogosphere who have asked how to help--we have set up a donation account at PayPal and are working with relief services and the Red Cross to determine the greatest needs. We will have this on the City of Los Angeles web site, but in the meantime I have put it up on my blog. Thanks to everyone for the outpouring of support for the victims.

Mr. Garcetti's blog also features his detailed account of what he saw at the accident site and includes some pictures of his own.
