A storm surge Saturday night made water levels in Santa Clara Canyon rise dramatically and quickly. By 9 p.m., the canyon had filled with approximately 9 feet of water, according to Santa Clara Tribal Sheriff Regis Chavarria.

Chavarria said the water was staying in the channel, however, and that there wasn’t a flood threat to homes or structures. As a precaution, N.M. 30 was shut down for a time in case culverts became filled with debris. The road was set to reopen when water levels in the canyon subsided. Chavarria said a thorough assessment of possible damage would be done once there was sunlight.
