Episode Narrative An upper level storm system moved east across northern Mexico across west Texas and southeastern New Mexico. Ahead of this system, a moist and unstable airmass was in place. As temperatures warmed throughout the day, the atmosphere became more unstable. Storms initiated in the Big Bend and across the mountains of southeastern New Mexico and moved north and eastward. The Midland county warning area saw five recorded tornadoes on the 23rd, four in New Mexico and one in Texas. The four in New Mexico were documented by both trained Skywarn spotters and by a National Weather Service damage survey team. The tornado in Texas was recorded by a television news/weather crew in the area. Baseball size hail was also associated with the Texas storm.
Event Narrative Numerous people in Carlsbad reported flash flooding. Some of the reports include four to six inches of water flowing across low lying roads at the beginning of the evening to three to four feet of water in major intersections in Carlsbad by the end of the night. Black River Road, Ogden Road, and Higby Hole Road in the Loving/Malaga area were barricaded due to flood waters. Illinois Camp Road in Carlsbad was declared impassable.
