November 13, 1902 [SBMP]: Captain Merry aboard Daisy, “reported a most disastrous cloudburst. He says that at 5:30 Monday morning when the men were all on deck, suddenly their attention was attracted by a loud rumbling sound. Glancing toward shore they discovered that a cloudburst had occurred on the north side of Diablo mountain, and an immense body of water was rushing down the canyon. The water was about 20 feet deep, and carried away everything in its path, including large trees.”
