Statement as of 2:55 PM MDT on May 04, 2015

The National Weather Service in El Paso has issued an

central Otero County in south central New Mexico...

* until 500 PM MDT

* at 254 PM MDT... National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated
thunderstorms with heavy rainfall across the advisory area. Doppler
radar estimated over 4 inches of rain had fallen east of Orogrande

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

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Additional rainfall amounts of up to an inch are possible in the
advisory area.

Excessive rainfall can quickly turn dry desert washes and arroyos
into raging rivers... even in areas far from where rain has fallen. Do
not attempt to cross flooded arroyos. Swiftly moving water can carve
deep channels in previously shallow washes... and water can be much
deeper than it appears. If your Route becomes cut off by flooded
arroyos... wait for flood waters to recede.
