Dark Canyon Flash Flooding - Carlsbad, New Mexico. June 29, 2021.

June 29, 2021.
Boyd Dr & Radio Blvd.
Carlsbad, New Mexico.
Normally Dry Dark Canyon Arroyo.



I made a typo on the time of the two videos above. It should read 4:43 PM DT and 4:45 PM MDT on the title page.

San Jose Blvd.


My photo above was taken at 4:11 PM MDT. At 4:15 PM MDT, the floodwaters in the arroyo were measured at 17'.99". The floodwaters crested at 2:30 PM MDT with a depth at the San Jose Blvd gauge of 19'.26" at 2:30 PM MDT. This is the third-highest crest in the arroyo at that gauge since 1966. Sadly we had one flash flood fatality when a person drove their vehicle into the Dark Canyon floodwaters.
