On the fateful night of January 9th of this year, Patrick Maynard and other members of Ventura County's emergency services team watched their monitors as early morning rainfall totals streamed in from gauges measuring a storm cell passing over Santa Cruz Island. "Over Santa Cruz Island on that night we had rainfall in excess of 9/10ths of an inch an hour," Maynard said at a recent public meeting in Oak View on debris flow risks.
