Episode Narrative Widespread thunderstorms generally moved from west to east across the Land of Enchantment during the afternoon and evening hours. The stronger storms produced hail up to the size of nickels, heavy rain and wind gusts up to 50 mph. Curb deep water was reported across many areas across the state, though more substantial flooding was noted around Acoma.
Event Narrative Several dirt and gravel roads were washed out completely along the northern periphery of the Acoma Indian Reservation and points just north of Acomita. Much of the damage occurred where arroyos crossed or neared the roadway. The greatest damage occurred along Indian Service Roads 34, 345, 30 and 26 as well as Stock Yard Road. Water continued to spill over what was left of the roadways days later. Minor damage was also noted on the Wastewater Treatment Facilities property.
