ALGODONES, N.M. (KRQE) – Sandoval County is talking about declaring a state of emergency in Algodones because of all the recent flooding. It started on July 23rd after more than an inch of rain fell in less than an hour.
The enormous flow of water obliterated a canal and flooded homes and yards. Then six days later another big storm created a similar situation.
While most of the area is dry now fixing the damage and preventing it from happening again will be expensive.
The commission has scheduled an emergency meeting Monday to declare a state of emergency so they can apply for federal funds.
