    Flash Flooding in Socorro New Mexico

    I was taking lighting photos just off the Quebrada Backcountry Byway, at the Ojo de Amado spring, when I captured this video, and some images of a fantastic flash flood.

    I knew this area would be likely to flood, and I was awed by the power and ferocity of the flow. This is normally a dry channel with a small little pool of water that attracts birds and other wildlife.

    Heavy rains have hit New Mexico tonight, with areas in neighboring Catron County receiving up to 2.5 inches of rain according to total precipitation maps. The Quebradas area received between 1 and 2 inches total, and the arroyos are filled to levels beyond what I've seen here before.

    The roaring of the water was simply incredible.

    Thank goodness, we've been so desperate for this rain - we'll take it however we get it, let's just hope that everyone stays safe out here tonight.
