Storms weakening a bit over #abq but stronger still south. Be careful out there! #nmwx #abq pic.twitter.com/Iby0G5GdTe
Winds in excess of 80 mph in #ABQ metro have been recorded with this cell over the city. Rainfall will be in excess of 2″ again. #nmwx
Flooding biggest issue. Winds could well damage roofs but flooding from this given last night will be devastating.
Torrential rain, flooding, hail and possible funnel with this storm. Stay inside flooding remains biggest threat. #nmwx #flood
Expect rain to fill in very rapidly over the southern part of #ABQ metro. Areas hit hard last night are getting drilled again. #nmwx #flood
