The Flood Warning continues for
the Rio Grande at Johnson Ranch.

Moderate lowland flooding begins. Roads that lead to Cottonwood

synonymous with the gage at Cottonwood Campground at Castolon
(cstt2), and therefore represent The Reach from Santa Elena Canyon
through Cottonwood Campground, where damage may occur. Cattle also
graze in The Lowlands, and may be threatened.

Jul 22 2013.
