We are fortunate that Mission Creek still runs through our city. After the disastrous flood of January 1914 when bridges and houses were washed away, and witnesses said the creek “roared like a freight train,” there was a proposal to divert Mission Creek somewhere north of the city so that it would follow the course of Arroyo Burro Creek out to the ocean, and bypass the city entirely.
