San Jose residents check on their damaged homes after a major flood forced the evacuation of more than 14,000 people.

This comes as the mayor of San Jose acknowledged that the city failed to properly notify residents to evacuate during a flood emergency early Wednesday.

The city began alerting residents of the flood situation on Tuesday via social and mainstream media and sending emergency alerts to those who had signed up for it, said city spokesman Dave Vossbrink.

When water levels changed dramatically overnight, they sent police and firefighters door-to-door during the dramatic overnight evacuation.
