the highest tide which we have seen since our arrival here". (David Ludlum)
...1957...
Extremely destructive Santa Ana winds blew from Oxnard to San Diego and
inland parts of southern California. The high winds produced a 28,000 acre

streets in some areas due to flying debris. (21st-22nd) (The Weather
Channel)
