Expires 7:15 PM EDT on August 01, 2015


The National Weather Service in El Paso has issued a

* Arroyo and Small Stream Flood Advisory for...
southwestern Hidalgo County in southwestern New Mexico...

* until 515 PM MDT

* at 220 PM MDT... Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to
thunderstorms. This will cause Arroyo and Small Stream flooding in
the advisory area. Between one and one and a half inches of rain
have already fallen.

* Some locations that may experience flooding include...
Cloverdale...
Geronimo campground.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Campers and hikers should avoid streams... creeks... and arroyos and
move to higher ground.

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

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. Find alternate routes. It takes only a few inches of
swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.
