The Warning Sculpture

The Warning Sculpture


Santa Paula, California (CA), US
At two and a half minutes before midnight on March 12, 1928, the St. Francis Dam catastrophically failed, and the resulting flood took the lives of as many as 600 people.

Among the many heroes of the flood that evening were two motorcycle officers who rode through the night to warn the sleeping citizens in the low lying areas of Santa Paula that a torrent of water was about to inundate their homes.
