Thursday, September 18, 2014 - 8:47am

Flash Flood Warning for Sundland Park, Chaparral, Canutillo, Anthony, Santa Teresa and S. Central Dona Ana County in Las Cruces lasting through 11:15a.m.

Heavy rain was falling on saturated ground which can quickly lead to excessive runoff.

Flash Flooding is likely around La Union and along the west slopes of the Franklin Mountains.

Remember, never drive a car across a flooded roadway. Turn around, Don't drown! Be safe!


The National Weather Service cancelled The Flash Flood Warning for El Paso and Hudspeth at around 3:45 a.m. 

This in now way means the threat of flash flooding is over.

Last night we saw anywhere from 2-3 inches of rain across the rain gauges in El Paso.

2.2" of rain was registered by Vista Del Sol and Yarbrough area.

Tim Brice, from the National Weather Service, he tweeted out his rain gauge in East El Paso recorded about 3.1" of rain.

This was all tropical moisture from Tropical Storm or should we call it now a Tropical Depression Odile.

It hit the hardest in Tucson, AR, about 5 hours away from the Sun City.

In El Paso, we got remnants of the storm, and it's not over yet.

Some models are indicating we are in for another strong round of storms, possibly 1-2 inches more today.

As it is we are seeing a large wave of moisture rolling through the area from South to East. Most of it is heading northeast, barely missing us.

But as the moisture continues to flow through, our potential for flooding will increase.

Please stay alert and keep up to date with us for any warnings that may develop over the course of the day.

The only good news I can deliver today, is by Friday, this flooding nightmare should come to a slow end.
