Episode Narrative Deep moisture, an upper level wave, and weak steering flow across the region allowed locally heavy rainfall to develop producing flash flooding. Torrential rainfall was reported in the Albuquerque Metro area with significant arroyo and roadway flooding. Heavy rainfall over the Ramah area created flooded roadways with an officer stranded along reservation road 135.
Event Narrative Intersection of El Pueblo Rd and Edith Blvd was washed over with rocks, dirt, and asphalt from a nearby bike path. Several urban arroyos in the region were near maximum capacity.
