HOLLISTER, Calif. (AP) - Nearly two dozen people have been rescued after an overflowing creek began flooding homes in Central California.

KSBW reports (https://bit.ly/2jB1mRb) mandatory evacuations were issued for residents near Pacheco Creek in Hollister Friday afternoon.

Firefighters went door-to-door checking on residents, deploying boats and completing 21 swift water rescues.

No injuries were reported.

Dozens of residents in the same neighborhood were rescued earlier in January when a levee broke in the middle of the night. People were rescued from their homes on boats, cows and horses.
