Flash Flood Warning In Effect Monday Night

Aug 4, 2014

A flash flood warning is in effect Monday across central and western New Mexico. Recent rains have already saturated the ground creating prime conditions for flooding.

The air around Albuquerque has been unusually thick with humidity since Friday night when an epic 100-year storm dumped more then 2 inches of rain in less than an hour.

Portions of downtown were completely flooded out because the downpour overwhelmed some of the city's pumping stations.
