Is Flooding an Issue in Palmdale?

2/5/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Equipment Flood damage in your Palmdale home is a problem you don’t have to face alone. Call SERVPRO for help. We have the tools and experience you can rely on.

SERVPRO Can Restore Flood Damage to Palmdale Homes

Palmdale enjoys many of the natural beauties typically shown in movies based in Los Angeles. The San Gabriel Mountains serve as a natural partition between the city and the Los Angeles Basin. Not surprisingly, the city owes its names to the abundance of palm trees in the area, even though local folklore tells a different story. Originally known as “Palmenthal,” it is suspected that the trees the first European settlers saw were, in reality, Joshua trees. Nevertheless, the name became official in 1888 once a post office was established.

Much like today, Palmdale and its surrounding area struggle with its desert climate, which poses a specific set of challenges for farmers. Consequently, its residents congregated around the South Pacific railroad station, providing services for those traveling between Los Angeles and San Francisco. In the early 1900s, the Los Angeles Aqueduct became a reality, thus alleviating the need for water and allowing for a flourishing agricultural industry. Mid-century, Edwards Air Force Base was established (its original name was Muroc Air Base), paving the way for the aeronautic sector.

As the population in the region grew, so did the need for affordable housing. The 1980s and 1990s allowed Palmdale, Lancaster, and most of Antelope Valley the opportunity to develop housing units, making them dormitory cities for those working in nearby Los Angeles. To this date, Palmdale continues to grow rapidly, as do the services necessary to fulfill its growing population. A transportation center, schools, libraries, and a revitalization of downtown have come together to benefit the community.

What to do in Antelope Valley

Although the desertic climate in Palmdale and its neighboring cities can make temperatures rise dramatically during the summer, outdoor activities can occur during most months of the year. 

Hundreds of hiking trails and open spaces welcome visitors of all skill levels, as do golf courses playgrounds. Among some of the best sites to visit, consider the following-

  • The Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve (especially beautiful in the spring)
  • The Arthur B. Ripley Desert Woodland State Park (great for a picnic)
  • Saddleback Butte State Park (a favorite for camping and bird watching)

Southern California is much more than beaches and movie-making, and Palmdale is a testament to it. Take advantage of the beauty of the area by planning outdoor activities for the whole family.
