Disaster Response: San Jose Flood
Storms in San Jose, California have caused disastrous flooding and mandatory evacuations for 14,000 people. Another 36,000 people were in the recommended evacuation area. 400 people have been rescued by boat, and many homes and cars have been damaged by flooding and falling trees. As of February 23, 3,800 residents remain under mandatory evacuation.
