California, USA – Flooding in San Jose, Calif., has prompted the evacuation of at least 14,000 residents. The mandatory evacuation orders began overnight, and will remain in effect for at least another day. Flooding along Coyote Creek came after a series of heavy rainstorms combined with water rushing down the spillway of nearby Anderson Reservoir, which is now filled to capacity. In addition to the 14,000 mandatory evacuations, some 22,000 people were encouraged to leave their homes.
