REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 2 AM MDT SATURDAY FOR NORTHERN OTERO...

At 1146 PM MDT, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms producing
heavy rain over the South Fork and Salt Fire Burn Scar. Between 0.5
and 1 inch of rain has fallen. Additional rainfall amounts of 0.5 to
1 inch are possible in the warned area. Flash flooding is ongoing or
expected to begin shortly.

Excessive rainfall over the burn scar will result in debris flow
moving through the Bear, Fence, and Snow Canyons. The debris flow
can consist of rock, mud, vegetation and other loose materials.

This is a FLASH FLOOD EMERGENCY for Highway 70, Heading into Ruidoso
Downs. This is a PARTICULARLY DANGEROUS SITUATION. SEEK HIGHER
GROUND NOW!

HAZARD...Life threatening flash flooding. Thunderstorms producing
         flash flooding in and around the South Fork and Salt
         Fire Burn Scar.

SOURCE...Radar.

IMPACT...This is a PARTICULARLY DANGEROUS SITUATION. SEEK HIGHER
         GROUND NOW! IMMEDIATE EVACUATION for areas in and around
         the South Fork and Salt Fire Burn Scar.

Some locations that will experience flash flooding include...
  Lake Mescalero.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Move to higher ground now! This is an extremely dangerous and
life-threatening situation. Do not attempt to travel unless you are
fleeing an area subject to flooding or under an evacuation order.

This is a life threatening situation. Heavy rainfall will cause
extensive and severe flash flooding of creeks...streams...and
ditches in the South Fork and Salt Fire Burn Scar. Severe debris
flows can also be anticipated across roads. Roads and driveways may
be washed away in places. If you encounter flood waters...climb to
safety.

Move away from recently burned areas. Life-threatening flooding of
creeks, roads and normally dry arroyos is likely. The heavy rains
will likely trigger rockslides, mudslides and debris flows in steep
terrain, especially in and around these areas.
