There have been several water rescues already, including one by helicopter, the mayor said. About 500 apartments are in the mandatory evacuation area and almost 200 people have been relocated, Liccardo said. Some were rescued from their homes by boat.

The mayor also expressed concern about a homeless encampment near Coyote Creek, where individuals were reluctant to leave.

Other low-lying areas near Coyote Creek are subjects of a voluntary evacuation order, the mayor said.
