Episode Narrative A stalled boundary combined with abundant moisture and instability led to quick thunderstorm development across northeast New Mexico on the 28th. Rainfall rates exceeding two inches per hour were reported. Slow and erratic storm motions increased the flash flooding potential over the area. Areas over the Track Fire burn scar as well as in Folsom were the hardest hit.
Event Narrative Significant runoff transported considerable amounts of ash and debris from the Track Fire burn scar into Lake Maloya. All lakes and ponds in the Sugarite area were bankfull.
