Flash Flooding Along The Rio Penasco & Rio Felix. 9-15-2013.

Very heavy rains fell across the east face of the Sacramento mountains east and northeast of Cloudcroft, NM yesterday afternoon. This has resulted in flash flooding in the area. Flood waters continue to work their way east down the Rio Felix Arroyo and Rio Penasco River this morning. 

I captured these two radar snapshots using GRLevel3_2.00 software from the Holloman AFB Doppler Radar. It appears that the max estimated rainfall amount according to radar is 6.63" in the 16 Springs Canyon area. Its possible that the storm total rainfall amounts may have been higher in some of these locations.
