northeastern Culberson County in southwest Texas...
southern Lea County in southeast New Mexico...

* until 430 PM CDT Saturday/330 PM MDT Saturday/

* at 1006 am CDT... flooding of rural roadways... low lying
areas... normally dry creeks... and arroyos... and rivers are still
a concern. Even though heavy rain has moved out of the area
there is still high water and it will take more time for the
water to runoff. Highway 302 at the Pecos River and Highway 285
are flooded and closed. Most other roads are open in the area but
low water crossings on rural roads may be impassable. The Pecos
River is running high from Red Bluff to Mentone. There are
concerns for flooding along the Pecos from Mentone to near
Railroad crossing just north of Interstate 20.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flooding deaths are preventable... and many occur when motorists
drive across flooded roadways. It is never safe to drive on flooded
roads. It takes only a few inches of rapidly flowing water to quickly
carry away your vehicle. Turn around... dont drown.
