Re: [californiadisasters] On This Date In CA Weather History (May 30)

The slide mentioned on Slide family was almost caught in the mudflow, which would have killed us for sure...we were kept from it by a flat tire 5 miles before where the flow came through...very scary day

On This Date In California Weather History....

2002: Thunderstorms dropped 1.01" of rain at the Hanford Airport in just 21 minutes in the afternoon resulting in street flooding in the city.
In just an hour, some 260 lightning strikes were recorded in the central and southern San Joaquin Valley.

1991: China Lake NAS clocked an 89 mph gust from the west, tied for the highest on record here (also had an 89 mph gust on January 14, 1950).

1984: Remarkably, on the same day of the highest maximum and minimum temperatures, Borrego Springs also recorded its record rainfall for this day.

1984: Intense winds, gusting as high as 60 mph, blew across Kern County shattering windows, knocking air conditioning units off roofs and toppling trees.
A number of utility poles also were knocked down, some which were leveled by "a wall of wind and dust".
On this same date, Fresno only dropped to 76 degrees for low, making it the warmest minimum temperature on record for the month of May.

1983: Very heavy rain caused a mudslide on Slide Mountain. The resulting debris flow that was sent down Ophir Creek forced the closure of U.S. Highway 395.

1918: It was 32° in Victorville, the latest date in the season with a freezing temperature on record.
