Press Release Summary = Recent landslides have failed to throw a damper on efforts to break the 1883-1884 rainfall record of 38.18 inches.

Press Release Body = Recent landslides that destroyed homes in the Bluebird Canyon area of Laguna Beach, CA have failed to throw a damper on efforts to bring about one last storm to break the 1883-1884 Los Angeles rainfall record of 38.18 inches.

In a statement released by the Save Los Angeles Now! coalition, spokesperson Sondra Lowell explained, "We send our condolences to the Bluebird Canyon homeowners. However, Laguna Beach is in Orange County, south of Los Angeles, and our meteorologists tell us that a 1.14 inch rainfall that soaks us but spares Laguna is do-able."

Added the activist, "We must push on with the project at hand and not let our
compassion sidetrack us at this late date." Rainfall must be logged before June 30 of this year to count toward the 2004-2005 record.

Members of Save Los Angeles Now! said they are making progress toward their goal but would not elaborate, revealing only that the Pray For Rain public service podcast posted at
( can now also be heard on KYOU Radio and, based in San Francisco.

Said a grateful Sondra Lowell, "Los Angeles is in a near-perpetual state of drought, and Northern Californians don't want us using their water. We are very fortunate that, due to a common goal, we have their support in this crisis."
