Flood Warning


FLOOD WARNING
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
906 AM CDT FRI SEP 19 2014

...The National Weather Service in Midland has issued a flood warning
for the following rivers in New Mexico...Texas...

  Pecos River at Malaga 10S affecting Eddy...Loving and Reeves
  Counties
  Black River above Black River Malaga 5W affecting Eddy County

Heavy rainfall over the last 48 hours has resulted in flooding on
the Pecos and Black Rivers in Eddy County in southeast New Mexico.
At 8 am MDT, rainfall continued over Eddy County, but was decreasing.
However, runoff from moderate to heavy rainfall since 2 am MDT will
keep both rivers above flood stage into this afternoon before the
water begins to recede.  Additional heavy rainfall is possible, so
these rivers may rise again later today or tonight.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Motorists are urged to heed flood warnings, and exercise caution if
traveling through this area.  Vehicle-related fatalities are the
number one source of flood fatalities in West Texas and New Mexico.
If you encounter a flooded stretch of roadway, do not attempt to
cross it.  You and your vehicle could be swept downstream in rushing
floodwaters.  Turn around, don`t drown!

River levels are high.  Ranchers and farmers should move livestock
and machinery out of flood-prone areas if time permits.

Keep in mind that any additional rainfall across the area could
significantly change the present forecast stage.

Additional information is available at:  www.weather.gov/midland
