New Mexico: Hurricane Dolly Storm Causes Flooding
The National Weather Service warned of flash floods along the eastern portion of New Mexico Sunday night as the remnants of Hurricane Dolly passed through the area, bringing with it 9 inches of rain. Officials have reported 300-500 people have been evacuated from their homes and camping areas after the Rio Ruidoso spilled over its banks on Sunday. Some residents are starting to return to their homes this afternoon but many are still displaced. The state estimates that over 60 homes have been damaged by the floodwaters.
