Jacob’s district includes Ramona, which experienced flooding as a result of the July 2015 rainfall. On a statewide basis, the 1997-98 El Nino storms caused more than $800 million in economic losses. That figure was derived from an October 2015 National University System Institute for Policy Research report, and the report also states that in San Diego County more than 50,000 residents and nearly 5,000 businesses are within a 100-year flood plain and thus susceptible to flooding during concentrated rainfall.
