Socorro's mayor has declared part of his town a disaster area.

Willie Gandara says it's a way to speed up the clean-up process.

Heavy rains caused massive flooding and some mud-slides last month.

Gandara says the disaster declaration will help side-step the bureaucratic process and protect people from being flooded out again
