Entire San Jose neighborhoods were submerged by water on Wednesday during the worst floods for 100 years.
50,000 people were told to flee their homes after evacuation warnings were issued in the early hours of the morning. Most were issued a flood warning but for 14,000 the order was mandatory.
The flooding began when Coyote Creek, which runs through Silicon Valley from the San Francisco Bay, burst its banks on Tuesday night. It sent dirty water pouring in to the towns below it at frightening pace.
On Wednesday, residents complained that the alert had not been sent out fast enough. Some said their first warning came when they saw neighbors being rescued from their drowning homes by firefighters in dinghies.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4250798/Worst-flooding-hit-San-Jose-100-years.html
