Episode Narrative Deep monsoon moisture combined with an easterly wave over southeast New Mexico to create widespread heavy rain across northern and central New Mexico. Hardest hit areas were in the vicinity of the central mountain chain, where several flash floods were observed.
Event Narrative A 16 year old boy was swept down the Embudo Arroyo by rapid flowing flood waters from near Juan Tabo and Candelaria to Carlisle and Interstate 40. This was a distance of five miles and the water was estimated to be flowing at 35 mph. The boy only received a few cuts and bruises.
