"Although the rain has largely stopped, flooding is continuing along Coyote Creek as reservoirs continue to spill and creek flow is extremely high", said Cheryl Wessling, a spokeswoman for the city's Emergency Operations Center, in an email early Wednesday.

New mandatory evacuations were issued in San Jose as flooding continues to spread along Coyote Creek.
Santa Clara County's largest reservoir, the Anderson Reservoir, was inundated with waters on Sunday and Monday that eventually overran the artificial lake and poured into Coyote Creek, causing much of what has transpired in San Jose over the past 24 hours.

"As I sit here today and I look out at a neighborhood that's completely inundated with water. there's no question in my mind there was a failure of some kind", he said.

The nonprofit's South Bay office is located at 2731 N. First St., in San Jose. It was the first time the spillway had been active since 2006, and the rare sight brought spectators to Anderson County Park to catch a view and take selfies of the cascading waterfall created by the flowing runoff into Coyote Creek.
Because of seismic safety concerns, the reservoir is supposed to only be at 60 percent or so capacity.
