SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — Continuing rain showers are causing some street flooding in San Jose Wednesday morning.
Public Works is making headway on The Alameda under the underpass of the railroad tracks that lead to Diridon Station. They’ve unclogged the drain and water has began receding 18 inches in the last hour.
Hours earlier, a woman coming home from work saw a car ahead of her successfully pass through the water. Once she decided to go, her son said a wall of water came out of no where, slammed into her car and killed her engine. She swam out to safety where firefighters helped her to dry off.
