San Antonio, NM
— July 16, 2019
Today is the one year anniversary of the San Antonio, NM, flash flood. The July 16 event flooded at least 18 homes and farm fields in San Antonio and knocked out power to more than 1500 customers in Magdalena. The flood coincided with rain rates in the mountains to the west near 3 inches per hour. Ranchers upstream of the town estimated 30-foot water marks in canyons west of I-25. Parts of town saw up to two feet of mud. The railroad tracks just east of town were damaged as the flood undercut the tracks.
