Four to ten inches fell at lower elevations. Flash flooding and mudslides caused millions of dollars of damage to homes, businesses, vehicles, parks, crops, roads and bridges. A state of emergency was declared in Riverside, Orange, San Bernardino, and San Diego Counties. Widespread catastrophic floods impacted nearly every community. This followed heavy storms in late December and earlier in January.

2001: A strong winter storm that started on this day and ended 1/11 brought two to four inches of rain to the coast and the valleys and 1.74 inches of precipitation to Phelan. Flash flooding occurred in Seal Beach, Huntington Beach, Garden Grove and Costa Mesa. 13 to 18 inches of snow fell in the Idyllwild area and three inches of snow blanketed Phelan. On this day a funnel cloud was observed at Orange County Airport. Wind gusts reached 71 mph at Phelan.

President Clinton issued a Federal Disaster Declaration for the Region.

1993: A very wet series of storms that began on 1/6 and ended on 1/19 produced 20 to 50 inches of precipitation in the mountains and up to 12 inches at lower elevations over a two week period.
