Episode Narrative Widespread showers and thunderstorms developed on the 19th in response to a weak upper level low tracking across northern New Mexico. High precipitable water values and slow storm motions resulted in high rainfall amounts in short periods of time. Southern portions of Santa Fe received the brunt of flooding issues.
Event Narrative Santa Fe police reported home evacuations near the intersection of Valmora Road and Serafina Street. Water was reported to be two feet deep and 40 feet wide. Two feet of water was also reported at the intersection of Rodeo Road and Old Pecos Trail. Cars attempting to drive through the water stalled. Two feet of water was also reported to have flooded a home at the Rainbow Vision Condominium Complex at I-25 and St. Francis Dr. Spotters in the area reported between 1 and 1.8 inches of rain in one hours time.
