LAS CRUCES, New Mexico — Authorities in southern New Mexico are preparing for possible flooding amid more storms scheduled to hit the state.

The Dona Ana County Fire and Emergency Services Department authorized Wednesday its 16 Volunteer Fire Districts to stock and distribute sandbags to residents.

Officials say distribution will be limited to 10 sandbags per residence or business due to limited availability. However, authorities say additional sandbags can be purchased at hardware stores.

The National Weather Service says there's a 50 percent of moderate to heavy rains Thursday in isolated areas across Dona Ana County.

Parts of New Mexico have seen flooding this week due to severe weather.
