Concrete rubble and remnants of the 1928 St. Francis dam disaster which can be seen along old compromised route of San Francisquito road in California. The hillside shows the scarring from paleo landslides which is said to have contributed to the failure of the dam that sent over 12 billion gallons of water raging through the Santa Clarita valley and over 50 miles away down to the ocean near Ventura taking the lives of over 450 people in it’s path. The approximate number of 450 was established around 1978 but officials to this date believe the true number of casualties could be closer to the count of 600.
