Flash flooding threat diminishes

-A A +A
By The Staff

Forecasters say flash flooding is less likely in much of northern and central New Mexico but that continued rain still keeps that threat alive in some areas, particularly on the eastern plains south of Interstate 40.
The National Weather Service says scattered showers and some heavy rainfall are expected to continue through Tuesday and later into the week.
Meanwhile, the American Red Cross says it has opened a new shelter in Crownpoint in northwestern New Mexico.
That shelter at Crownpoint High School is being used by Navajo Technical University students. They’d been in a temporary shelter because of storm damage to the university campus last week.
Gov. Susana Martinez has approved an emergency airlift of food, water and other supplies to a tiny community in southwestern New Mexico that was cut off after flooding washed out the only paved road leading to it.
Martinez spokesman Enrique Knell said Monday that supplies will be flown into the former mining town of Mogollon on Tuesday.
The community became isolated after weekend flooding damaged state Route 159. Roughly 16 residents permanently live in the town nestled in the mountains in Catron County. A creek paralleling the road surged from its banks after heavy rains.
