Episode Narrative Deep moisture combined with a weak upper level disturbance allowed slow moving thunderstorms to develop across central and western New Mexico. Torrential rainfall affected many areas, including Gallup, Albuquerque, Los Lunas, and Jemez Springs, where localized flash flooding was reported.
Event Narrative Significant amounts of water flowed over Thompson Bridge on Telstar Road in Church Rock which eventually caused the bridge to collapse. The bridge served as the only way in and out of the Church Rock community. Other portions of this road were covered in up to 3 feet of mud. Challenger Road, which leads up to the elementary school, was covered with up to 5 feet of mud. Superman Canyon Road, Old Church Rock Coal Road and Becenti Trail were also washed out.
