Episode Narrative The remnants of Hurricane Dolly moved northwestward into far west Texas, moving directly over west El Paso, then curved north and northeastward into Otero County New Mexico. Moisture from this system spread over most of southern New Mexico and lingered another 36 hours. Storm totals from early the 26th into the 27th peaked at more than 4 inches in the Santa Teresa Country Club area.
Event Narrative Multiple low water crossings were flooded. Other areas were only accessible to four wheel drive vehicles due to excessive debris.
