Flooding Along ST Hwy 128 In Eddy Co NM.


Blog Updated @ 9:15 AM MDT Monday Sept 8, 2014.
  





Moderate to very heavy rain was once again falling across parts of Eddy and Lea Counties this morning. I encountered flash flooding across State Highway 128 between mile markers #8 and #10 on my way home from work this morning. Fields at this location were flooding into the bar ditches which were running 3 feet deep, and were over flowing onto the highway. The road was under 6 inches of water at the time of these photos. 



Here are the GRLevel3_2.00 Midland NWS Radar Estimated 2-Day Storm Total Rainfall Snapshots. The radar is over estimating some of these rainfall totals. The grey shaded area between Carlsbad and Eunice is showing 5.00" to 9.00" of storm total rainfall. I talked with the forecasters at the Midland NWS Office this morning and they think the truth is closer to 4.00+", maybe in the neighborhood of 4.00" to 6.00". Its good to see these types of soaking rainfall totals from across the area.
