The National Weather Service in Albuquerque has issued a

* Arroyo and Small Stream Flood Advisory for...
  Central Socorro County in central New Mexico...

* Until 845 PM MDT.

* At 547 PM MDT, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to
  thunderstorms. This will cause arroyo and small stream flooding in
  the advisory area. Up to two inches of rain have already fallen.

* Flooding will remain over mainly rural areas of central Socorro
  County. This includes Chupadera Arroyo.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Turn around, don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Both localized and distant heavy rainfall will create dangerous flows
in arroyos and over low water crossings. Do not attempt to drive
through these waters. Water in arroyos may travel many miles and take
hours to reach your location from upstream rain areas.
