Yes. Often get the residuals only though, the storm after it has lost strength and is no longer a tropical cyclone (a "hurricane"). It is not common for such storms to migrate from near Mexico up beyond south-central California because of Coriolis forces (clockwise turning, turning east as go north) and the downflux of cold water along the west coast that pushes against any northward-migrating tropical air masses, and, of course, the presence of the Rockies and mountains west of the Rockies, which block air flow in the lower atmosphere. There have been some nasty hurricanes that have hit southern California in the past.
Most Pacific hurricanes migrate westward with the currents and don't turn northward toward the southwest US. Sort of like how hurricanes in the Atlantic tend to start off toward Africa before turning north in the Caribbean.
