America : People in an area famous for the cultivation of strawberries in Northern California were forced to evacuate their homes on Saturday due to flooding of the Pajaro River. More than 8,500 people were ordered to evacuate Saturday in Monterey County on the Central Coast.
Officials said crews went door-to-door on Friday afternoon urging residents to vacate their homes before the rains hit, but some people stayed put and were pulled out of floodwaters early Saturday.
