Statement: Damage sustained from the Rio Puerco Flood in September 2013
Abstract: This is a local news clip from Koat News, Alberquerque, New Mexico. It documents the damage that the small town of San Francisco sustained due to the flooding of the Rio Puerco in September 2013. The Rio Puerco is a tributary to the Rio Grande in New Mexico. It is a dryland river and has streamflow only when there is major rain fall in its drainage area. In September 2013 an exceptionally high water occured, and the Rio Puerco overtopped its arroyo system and broke a levee. The water ran into farm fields and damaged homes and local roads. One resident shows the water level rose over 2ft in his house.
