History
The Catastrophic Failure of the St. Francis Dam - At five minutes to midnight, on Thursday, March 12, 1928, the towns of Santa Paula, Newhall, Piru and Fillmore were undoubtedly peaceful, sequestered from harm, residents asleep in their warm beds. Less than three minutes later, all hell would break loose and more than 450 people would be dead. Eighty years ago, the single-worst engineering disaster of the 20th Century in the United States and the second worst disaster in California history occurred, scarring Ventura County. The St. Francis Dam Disaster is a tragedy of unparalleled proportions; one that may have been avoidable and, historians say, should never be forgotten.
