ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Sunday was a rainy day in parts of New Mexico, including the Metro. Arroyos filled up, a flood warnings were issued, and Albuquerque Fire Rescue (AFR) was sent out on water rescues.

“It is extremely important for our community to understand the dangers of the arroyo system and ditches located throughout the city. Although what may appear as a small storm far away from one location in the city, these arroyos will quickly fill and sweep anyone in them with fast-moving water. These arroyos are designed to safely divert water away from the city, and no one should access or occupy them,” stated a release from AFR.

A total of 22 units responded to their designated locations during the callout.
