February 11th in Seal Beach History

On this date in 1973, a two-week series of deadly storms came to an end according to the Long Beach Independent. These violent storms resulted in deaths and damage throughout Southern California, but the last storm in the series created a landslide that stranded four Seal Beach residents in the Mt. Baldy area. Kenneth and Jackie Springer and their two-year old daughter, Wendy, and a ten-year old neighbor, Gigi Maitland had to be escorted six miles to safety by the San Dimas Mountain Rescue Team.
