Episode Narrative As an upper level trough crossed the northern Rocky Mountains, moisture surged northward across New Mexico. Initially, a severe storm with hail and very heavy rain formed over the Sacramento Mountains. Then, while the associated cold front moved down the eastern plains, a few prolific lightning producing storms impacted the Rio Grande Valley with heavy rain and hail.
Event Narrative County Road 1 was impassible as water was quickly running over the road and lapping up along the Tse Bonito bridge. Though the bridge remains standing, the water tore off both sides of the bridge.
