Murky, waist-high floodwaters swamped neighborhoods along a rain-swollen creek in the northern California city of San Jose Tuesday, prompting authorities to issue evacuation orders or advisories for more than 1,000 homes, city officials said.About 300 homes were ordered evacuated in low-lying Rock Springs, and city officials urged residents of roughly 200 dwellings in the Williams Street neighborhood downstream to leave their homes, city spokesman David Vossbrink said.At least 3 inches (8 cm) of rain fell in many areas, though some received far more, such as the sparsely populated Big Sur region and outside the city of Santa Rosa, which got more than 8 inches (20 cm), the weather officials said.
