SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Raging waters from the Santa Fe River and arroyos have caused damage to Santa Fe homes, city facilities and infrastructure following a heavy rainstorm.
More than 3 inches (8 centimeters) of rainfall were reported in some areas of northern Santa Fe county on Monday evening.
The storm also caused a power outage in some parts of the city.
A Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office spokesman tells the Santa Fe New Mexican that despite flooded arroyos and roadways covered in debris, no serious accidents or injuries were reported as of 9 p.m. Monday.
City Manager Erik Litzenberg tells the Albuquerque Journal that there is a number of homes and infrastructure that will need to be stabilized and repaired.
The National Weather Service says more rain is likely throughout the week.
