[CaliforniaDisasters] On This Date In California Weather History (October 18)

2015: Thunderstorms dropped very heavy rainfall in Death Valley.
Scotty's Castle measured 2.72" of rain in roughly five hours.
Major flash flooding hit the Grapevine Canyon area of Death Valley National Park .
Mesquite Springs Campground and Grapevine Ranger Station were evacuated; eight vehicles full of visitors and three park rangers were stranded overnight near Ubehebe Crater.
Trenches up to six feet deep were cut into Scotty's Castle Road.
24 power poles were downed.
Mud and debris damaged or destroyed the water supply infrastructure, stables, visitors center, and the cookhouse.

2010: A National Weather Service Survey Team has determined that the storm damage in the Rancho Santa Fe Subdivision in Kingman, Arizona that occurred on 18 October between 445 pm and 5 pm was caused by an EF0 tornado on the Enhanced Fujita Scale. 
Damage estimates were consistent with winds around 75 mph. 
The tornado made two brief touchdowns separated by 1.2 miles in distance with two single family homes suffering minor roof damage.  
The tornado likely quickly generated on the southern edge of thunderstorms that were moving northeast to southwest across the area. 
The tornado formed on this boundary in the very lowest part of the thunderstorms and moved with the storms.

2005: Weak low pressure off the Southern California Coast entrained tropical moisture that resulted numerous rainfall report of 2.5"-3" of rain in the Kern County Mountains around Frazier Park from the evening of the 17th into the morning of the 18th.
Heavy rainfall in the Kern County Mountains and Deserts led to flooding on the 17th and early on the 18th. 
On the Kern Desert Floor normally dry streams flash flooded affecting areas north of California City, including State Highway 14 near the intersection with Redrock-Randsburg Road as well as upstream, smaller roadways.
Rainfall amounts reported in the Kern Desert included 2.37" and 2.55" around Rosamond, 1.83" at Boron, and 1.16" at Mojave. 

2004: A significant early snowfall occurred in the Southern Sierra Nevada Mountains of Central California October 17-18. 
Precipitation amounts included 16" of new snow at Agnew Pass; 14" at Upper Burnt Corral; 13" at Green Mountain; 11" at Blackcap Basin; and, 7" at Farewell Gap (Tulare County Mountains).

1988:
China Lake NAS reached 100° F for a high temperature.
This is the latest triple digit high temperature on record here.

1969: Palomar Mountain ended a 163 day dry spell by recording a whopping 0.04" of rainfall.

1963: Strong thunderstorms hit the Twentynine Palms area.
Flash floods and debris flows moved into several homes and yards.
Roads were left impassable.

1949: Fresno recorded a low of 36° F, setting a record for the date.
This was also the first of 5 days in a row with lows in the 30's, a record for the month of October in Fresno.

1946: The morning low temperature at Reno, NV was 19° F and 1" of snow fell there.

1920: 20" of snow fell at Tahoe City.

1893: San Jose had a low temperature of 30
° F after seeing a low of 31° F the previous day.

1888: A strong thunderstorm produced extensive washouts along the railway between Yuma, AZ, and Texas Hill, AZ.

[CaliforniaDisasters] Nearly 600 Structures on California Colleges Have Seismic Deficiencies: Report

Records show 591 structures, including classrooms, libraries, and research labs need to be retrofitted or replaced before a major earthquake hits

When the next big earthquake hits, hundreds of student buildings on college campuses across the state could pose a serious hazard to everyone inside, according to seismic reports obtained by the NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit.

The findings are part of a continuous effort by school administrators at the University of California and California State University systems to identify unsafe buildings with seismic deficiencies. NBC Bay Area teamed up with our partners at NBC LA and NBC San Diego to request inspection records for every public university. Records show more than 590 structures, including classrooms, libraries, and research labs that need to be retrofitted or replaced before a major earthquake hits.



LESSONS LEARNED

Civil engineer David Mar owns Mar Structural Design in Berkeley. The state hired his firm and others to identify seismic hazards on college campuses and to enable buildings to better withstand an earthquake.

"These buildings are going through really significant and brutal tests when they go through a major earthquake, and they actually have to transform and dissipate energy and remain stable. It's a real hard ask," Mar told NBC Bay Area.

After the Loma Prieta (1989) and Northridge (1994) earthquakes, scientists gained a better understanding of how earthquakes move, allowing engineers to build more resisted buildings. Mar said those earthquakes also revealed which structures were built to fail.

"We're kind of understanding what the faults are capable of, how much energy they're releasing, better understanding the frequency, better understanding of soil [and] how intense the problem is," Mar said. "Especially when we're looking at archaic structures, we're testing them to these really high tests. I mean in a sense, we're taking a real earthquake, shaking a real building, and they have to break and transform and essentially go through that process and dissipate energy without collapsing."

The CSU system lists 65 buildings that need to be repaired or replaced. Eighteen of those buildings are at San Francisco State University and the school's satellite campus in Tiburon.

University spokesman Barry Shiller told NBC Bay Area the campus knows firsthand how destructive an earthquake can be after Loma Prieta forced school officials to red tag and implode the dorms at Verducci Hall.

"Most of [the buildings in Tiburon] were red tagged a couple of years ago and are now not in use. Some of them are going to be retrofitted, many of them probably will not. They will be demolished and eventually replaced," Shiller said.

Main campus buildings that warrant seismic upgrades include an administration building as well as several campus apartments.

"The seismic committee reviewed all of that work, deemed the buildings all inhabitable. But there is still more work to be done and will be done once funding is freed up," Shiller said.

At Cal State East Bay, the main campus library requires urgent attention for seismic upgrades, according to the CSU Seismic Review Board. Construction is currently underway on a replacement named the CORE Building, schedule to open in the fall of 2021.

The UC system is currently in the midst of a comprehensive review to inspect every structure on all nine campuses and address any seismic problems by 2030.

Thus far, engineers have found 526 buildings on five campuses that pose a serious threat to safety, according to records provided to NBC Bay Area.

Sixty-eight of those low rated buildings are owned by UC Berkeley. In September, school administrators sent an email to all students and faculty detailing the seismic inspection results.

Another 69 low-rated buildings are owned by UC Davis, including the fire and police headquarters, research centers, major classrooms, a medical center, and a laboratory handling radioactive nuclear material.
