February 8, 1908 [LAT/SP]: “The fishing power launch Leone, Captain Swansen, has returned from a trip to Santa Cruz and other Channel Islands, bringing back but a small catch of crawfish. Captain Swansen reports that the recent storms were especially severe on the islands, and nearly all the men who have established fishing camps on the various islands sustained loss or damage to their outfits. The crawfish traps and storage boxes, as well as the small boats and camping outfits were destroyed by landslides and the heavy swells. Charles Wilson, who has a camp on Santa Cruz Island, lost $200 worth of crawfish which were ready for shipment to the mainland. Most all the provisions in his camp were destroyed by the rush of water from the uplands and the small fishing boats were smashed by the breakers on the beach. The Dubbin brothers, who had established a camp on Anacapa Island, sustained similar losses. In one particularly heavy downpour six inches of rain fell in two hours.”
