    “This is the funnest game I’ve ever played in my life,” he said, matter-of-factly.

  • UPDATE: Surge in river not as bad as expected

  • BREAKING: Gov. Martinez declares disaster

    The flooding in San Miguel County and other areas of New Mexico prompted Gov. Susana Martinez to sign an executive order Friday declaring an emergency.

    "Through this executive order, I have directed state government resources to ensure the safety and well being of everyone affected by these heavy storms," Martinez said in a release. "As the heavy rains continue, I encourage all New Mexicans to continue to pay attention to your local weather forecast and be aware of warnings wherever you are."

  • Ruptured canal contributing to flooding

    A portion of the earthen canal that carries floodwaters to Storrie Lake ruptured either late Thursday or early Friday, and that has contributed to the flooding that has taken place, Mayor Alfonso Ortiz said at a news conference Friday afternoon.

    The emergency operations center has been activated, and a hotline has been established to answer calls from the public.

    That number is 454-3700.

    Ortiz said the rupture occurred east of Bradner Dam near the village of Los Vigiles.
