Street flooding was observed in our neighborhood
on the northwest side of town. Water came up over
the curb and into our driveway, and ran into the 
backyard. I measured 1.49" from the storm.

Thursday afternoon a Severe Thunderstorm hammered Carlsbad with lots of hail, high winds, and very heavy rainfall that produced flash flooding in the city. Storm reports indicate that the hail ranged from pea size all the way up to golf ball size.

 A 67 mph wind gust was measured at the Carlsbad Airport ASOS at 5:27 PM MDT. Five power poles were snapped about two feet above the ground at Derrick Rd and U.S. Hwy 62/180. Other power poles were reported by the public to have been snapped by the high winds in the La Huerta area of northeastern Carlsbad. 

I've seen a couple of reports so far of 3.00" to 4.50" of rain having fallen in the La Huerta area. Radar (images above) estimated that as much as 6.45" may have fallen just east of the city. Although I suspect that this may be somewhat high due to the hail contaminating the radar estimates of the rainfall. 

Meanwhile I was at work (50 miles east of town in Lea County) and missed out on this one.
