Announcement - 10/26/2022

 Flood Watch Las Vegas/ Mora – The National Weather Service in Albuquerque has issued Flood Watch for The Hermits Peak-Calf Canyon burn scar for Mora County and San Miguel County in northeastern New Mexico.

 
FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM NOON MDT TODAY THROUGH THIS EVENING.
 

* WHAT... Flash flooding caused by excessive rainfall is possible.

* WHERE... Portions of north central and west central New Mexico, including the following areas, in north central New Mexico, East Slopes Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Jemez Mountains and Southern Sangre de Cristo Mountains. In west central New Mexico, Southwest Mountains.

* WHEN... From Noon MDT today through this evening.

* IMPACTS... Heavy rainfall may lead to excessive runoff over recent wildfire burn scars such as the Hermits Peak-Calf Canyon, Cooks Peak, Cerro Pelado and Black burn scars. Excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers, creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS... Wildfire burn scars have already received heavy rainfall over the past few days and will be especially vulnerable to excessive runoff and flash flooding.

Be sure to stay up to date with information from local authorities. Heavy rainfall could trigger flash flooding of low-lying areas, urbanized street flooding, and debris flows in and near recent wildfire burn scars. Significant runoff may cause flooding of creeks and rivers.
