Coyote Creek Flood

A teenage boy follows his grandmother through murky waters back to their apartment on Senter Road in San Jose.

On February 21, 2017, the Nordale neighborhood in San Jose was heavily affected by the overflowed Coyote Creek. The following are photos I took from the day it happened and from the aftermath.

On a lighter note...

The music flows through Chase Sagisi during a dance rehearsal at California's Great America.

Since 2015, Chase Sagisi has been fighting depression and anxiety. Sagisi would smoke marijuana daily in order to cope with his negative thoughts. Now he struggles to resist the urge to smoke and to fall back into a dark abyss.
