Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Warning
Issued: 6:34 PM MDT Aug. 30, 2016 – National Weather Service

The National Weather Service in Midland has issued a

* Flood Warning for small streams in...
southwestern Eddy County in southeastern New Mexico...

* until 930 PM MDT

* at 623 PM MDT... the Carlsbad Fire Department reported water rising
in Dark Canyon Draw... which will cause flooding of low water
crossings on Dark Canyon Road... or County Road 408. The low water
crossings on Dark Canyon Road are from 3 to 6 miles west of
Highway 62/180. Although rainfall has subsided since 4 PM MDT...
runoff from two to four inches of rainfall in the last 12 to 24
hours will result in 2 to 4 feet of water running over these low
water crossings... and should be avoided.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around... don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.
