Pecos River Flooding - High Water Rescue.




It appears that the Pecos River flood crest of 17.36' at 1:45 PM MDT on Sunday, August 21, 2022, might be a new record at the Acme Gauge northeast of Roswell. We will have to wait for the final review from the USGS to know for sure.










Initially, the forecast flood crest of the Pecos River at the Lake Arthur Gauge was 27' which would have been five feet above its historical record crest of 21.9' on September 24, 1941. The forecast crest was lowered down to around 20' but crested well below these forecasts at 13.37' at 3:45 PM MDT on Friday, August 26, 2022. 









Saturday, August 20, 2022.
Flash Flooding At Carlsbad Caverns National Park.

Flood waters in Dark Canyon near Whites City failed to reach Carlsbad even though the flood crest was 9.98' at 9 PM MDT Saturday, August 20, 2022.





Widespread moderate to heavy rainfall fell across all of the local area between Wednesday, August 17, and Monday, August 22, 2022. For area rainfall totals see my blog post on Wednesday, August 24, 2022.
