Episode Narrative The monsoonal moisture plume shifted eastward on the 13th, stretching across much of eastern New Mexico. Thunderstorms started early over the Sacramento Mountains, before spreading across the eastern plains and increasing in coverage and intensity. A few of the storms briefly became severe, with damaging wind gusts, and quarter sized hail. A gustnado was also reported north of Glenrio.
Event Narrative Heavy rains led to flooding in Allison Canyon along U.S. Highway 70 near mile marker 268. Fortunately, residents in the River Ranch RV park along the canyon were evacuated prior to the high water reaching the ranch. An estimated 4 to 6 feet of water flowed through the area. Fortunately, the RV park did not sustain much damage.
