Areal Flood Advisory

Statement as of 6:50 PM MDT on September 23, 2014

Expires 10:45 PM EDT on September 23, 2014

The National Weather Service in El Paso has issued a

* Flood Advisory for...
Central Grant County in south central New Mexico...

* until 845 PM MDT

* at 647 PM MDT... National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated
thunderstorms with heavy rainfall across the advisory area. Doppler
radar estimated from 1 to 1.5 inches of rain had fallen in the
last hour.

* Locations impacted include...
Mangas Springs...
Road u180...
black Smith Canyon...

Runoff from this excessive rainfall will cause minor flooding to
occur... especially along small streams and near low water crossings.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to travel across
flooded roads. It only takes a few inches of swiftly flowing water to
carry vehicles away.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding. If flooding is observed act quickly. Do not
enter the water. Turn around and move up to higher ground to escape
flood waters.
