A Terrifying, Deadly Storm Struck Northern California In 1997 And No One Saw It Coming

The last few years in Northern California have been dry and we are all tired off this drought. We’ve constantly got our fingers crossed for more rain, but it wasn’t always this way in Northern California.This New Years is the 20th anniversary of the 1997 storm and subsequent flood that shook this area to its core.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

Do you remember the terrible flooding of 1997? We can’t believe it happened 20 years ago!
