Beginning on Decem , and lasting for 45 days, the largest flood in California's recorded history occurred, reaching full flood stage in different areas between January 9–12, The entire Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys .

The following documentation was taken from: U.S. Geological Survey Water-Resources Investigations Report Nationwide summary of U.S. Geological Survey regional regression equations for estimating magnitude and frequency of floods for ungaged sites, CALIFORNIA. The M and M Ridgecrest earthquake sequence occurred in the eastern California shear zone (ECSZ). The mainshock ruptured the Little Lake fault zone and aftershocks extended from the Garlock fault in the south, to the southern end of the M Owens Valley earthquake rupture in the north. We present data from the Southern California. California is the most geologically diverse and the second most seismically active state in the USA. The California Geological Survey provides scientific products and services about the state's geology, seismology and mineral resources, including their related hazards, that affect the health, safety, and business interests of the people of California. FEMA is the official public source for flood maps for insurance purposes: NOAA is responsible for producing flood forecast maps that combine precipitation data with USGS streamflow data: Flood Inundation Mapper: Shows where flooding might occur over a range of water levels. Only available for a few areas. Flood Event Viewer: Data such as rapid.
