The CA EDD has a program which replaces some of your wages and the normal waiting period is being waived due to the Gov. declaring the fires to officially be a "disaster".

This is from their website:

The UI program provides partial wage replacement benefits to workers who lose their jobs, or have their hours reduced, through no fault of their own.
