Historical hurricane tracks

Neat app by the NOAA (even has Pacific Coast locations - including one "direct hit" on Los Angeles, California (!) in 1978) : http://www.csc.noaa.gov/digitalcoast/tools/hurricanes

Whatever hit Los Angeles in 1978, it was definitely not a full-fledged hurricane (had it been so, I would remember it, as I was living in L.A. then). Once in a great while, the remnants of a dying hurricane or tropical storm will get into southern California. In 1976, Tropical Storm Kathleen went right up the Gulf of California and into the desert areas south of Palm Springs and dumped a lot of rain. In 1982, the leftovers from a hurricane named Iwa (which a few days earlier had clobbered the Hawaiian island of Kauai--I was living there at the time and that was nasty) hit the California coast and dumped a lot of rain, but by then, Iwa was no longer a truly tropical system. In 1997, a strong hurricane named Linda briefly threatened to make history by hitting the southern California coast as a true hurricane, but then veered away. And I've read in several reliable sources that the San Diego area was hit by a true hurricane way back in the 1800s sometime.

It would be an unusual event, but to my way of thinking, I expect southern California will some year get hit by a hurricane. If there are El Nino-warmed waters and a very strong hurricane moving toward California at an unusually fast clip, it could happen.

August 28th, 2007 saw the last of Hurricane Dean, which was notable for producing a lightning storm off the coast of Orange County - very, very rare in the summer. 

the storm tracker shows Dean being reduced to a Tropical Storm by the time it hit Mexico City; it picked up just enough energy over the Mexican western coast to give one last push to California.
