After wasting taxpayer money for more than 10 years I can't understand how San Francisquito creek still floods.

Chaucer Bridge is a man-made mistake - more of a dam than a bridge.
Emails and voice mails from the City - warning that flooding is imminent and to get sandbags - are NOT helpful. We already know that.
Long overdue for a fix. City knows there is a problem, and has failed to act.

How sad that no comments show sympathy for those evacuated. There were actually hundreds of people who left. They were luckily able to return late at night or the next morning & there were just a few who flooded. But still, during a busy holiday season that is supposed to bring joy, how lousy that they had to leave the warmh of their homes & seek shelter elsewhere!
The lack of planning by authorities for everyone near the creek, in ALL of the involved cities, is inexcusable. Some emergency personnel were also given the wrong info late Sun eve. We are *livid* about this avoidable situation that severely stressed out hundreds of people, plus the lack of info & lack of assistance here on the west side. All of the involved authorities should be truly ashamed.
Some of the east side EPA residents interviewed on TV were really cool about what happened - I wish I felt the same way.
