RIVER EXPECTED TO RISE ONE FOOT OVERNIGHT

The Doña Ana County Flood Commission has announced that the Rio Grande will likely rise a minimum of one foot overnight due to runoff from flooding in Sierra and Doña Ana counties. Residents who live along or near the river are urged to pay close attention to rising water levels and to be prepared to evacuate on short notice if necessary. No evacuation orders are in place south of Rincon at this time.
