Everyone I've met who've lived here for decades say the 90s were way worse, for LA anyway. Except for the homless situation, which doesn't really effect people's day to day lives.

In the 90s, race relations were awful, tons of gangs, crime and murder rates were far worse, 94 Northridge quake, Rodney King riots, Mudslides, economy was in shambles etc.

And it bounce back in the mid 2000s, until the recession. And now it's bounced back stronger.

LA's CSA was the leader in jobs added, and SF is in the top 3 or 5. San Diego is doing very well too.

The wildfires suck, but they don't hurt most people's lives. They mostly burn up dead brush, not communities.
Hurricances and floods destroy more houses, cause more deaths etc.
