Up to 50,000 residents across the Bay Area have been evacuated this week in the wake of a series of fierce storms. “This is a once-in-a-100-year flood event,” National Weather Service meteorologist Roger Gass said to the Los Angeles Times, referring to Coyote Creek’s surging height in South San Jose. “This is a record level.”
Road closures and detours across the Bay Area are making the grueling commute more difficult than normal. Areas such as Hwy 17 and US 101 at Coyote Creek, who’s spillway crested Tuesday night (02/21/17), are being affected as many people seek alternative routes or avoid traffic altogether.
