A large winter season storm pummeled Southern California. Not just daily, but monthly record rainfall was received in only one day across the region. The same happened again on 10/27. The monthly record rainfall was exceeded in only six hours in many locations of Orange County on this day. Totals for last two weeks of October were four to eight inches in lower elevations, and up to 14 inches at Lake Arrowhead. On this day a storm wind of 39 mph was measured at Lindbergh Field from the south, the strongest October wind on record. Seven daily rainfall records fell on this day: Palomar Mountain (6.20), Big Bear Lake (3.25 inch), Santa Ana (3.15), Idyllwild (2.65), Campo (2.64), Riverside (2.50), and Vista (1.88). 3.5 inches of snow fell in Idyllwild, the greatest daily amount on record for October. Widespread flooding occurred. A bridge washed out near Wrightwood. One motorist was killed in floodwaters near Lytle Creek. Many mountain roads were impassable with mud and rockslides. Railroad tracks in Fontana washed out, derailing a train. The Santa Ana River flooded, putting horses neck-deep in flood waters in Norco and a rescue was made at a Chino golf course. Several funnel clouds were reported offshore from San Clemente.
