Today in history

Today is Monday, Nov. 12, the 317th day of 2012. There are 49 days left in the year.


On this date in the SCV: On this day in 2003, a ruptured water pipe caused streets to flood and collapse. The fiasco occurred on Sandy Drive, east of Sierra Highway. Despite the mess the pipe created, no residents were directly affected. California Edison crews filled the 25-foot by 10-foot sinkhole with dirt after the remaining water was flushed out.


Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 12, 1942, the World War II naval Battle of Guadalcanal began. (The Allies ended up winning a major victory over Japanese forces.)


On this date: In 1990, Japanese Emperor Akihito formally assumed the Chrysanthemum Throne.
Ten years ago: In an audiotaped message, a voice purported to be that of Osama bin Laden praised terrorist strikes in Bali and Moscow and threatened Western nations over any attack on Iraq.
