Orange County Storm: Burn-scarred residents are relieved the rain did less damage than feared

SILVERADO CANYON, Calif. (KABC) — The burn-scarred communities of Orange County breathed a sigh of relief after this week’s bomb cyclone rainstorm did not inflict as much damage as feared.

Communities like Silverado Canyon have suffered severe damage from mudslides during previous storms after the Bond Fire left the slopes bare and unable to contain water flows.

This time they saw some mudflows and minor floods here and there, but none of the devastation of the past.

“It gets better every time,” said Laura Bennett, who has lived in the neighborhood for 30 years. “Less and less. Hopefully this is all over.”

Elsewhere in Orange County, some streets in cities like Westminster and Fullerton were flooded, causing chaos for motorists. Knott’s Berry Farm was closed due to the weather.

At Seal Beach, a 14-foot berm along the sand managed to protect oceanfront homes, with only minor flooding reported.

“We need as much rain as possible,” said a local resident. “So I’ll take it.”
