( CNN) While floodwaters in the northern California city of San Jose were receding Wednesday, the mayor said they were contaminated and residents of 14, 000 households ordered to evacuate should not yet return home.

The mansions under the mandatory evacuation are near a creek that appears to have been breached, Mayor Sam Liccardo said. Tens of thousands of more homes are under voluntary evacuation notifications.

One resident slept in his auto instead of going to a shelter.
