I think the key word there is "recognized."

It takes a lot to get noticed in California...

On this date in 1973 the San Juan Capistrano meteorite (a 56 gram
H6-chondrite) punched a hole through the roof of a carport in a trailer
park, becoming California's first AND ONLY recognized fall.

How is it that a state of this size and population has only one fall?
