1964 Flood

Looking south over the Salinas River as it floods its banks on December 22, 1964.  The six days from December 19–24, 1964 were the wettest ever recorded at many stations on the California Coast. Every major stream in the Northern California produced new high values of extreme peak flows. 34 California counties were declared disaster areas.  (Monterey County Herald Archives)
