LAS CRUCES, New Mexico — Western and northern New Mexico may see flooding as new storms move across the state.

The National Weather Service says the region will remain under a flash flood watch until early Friday morning amid another storm system. The severe weather comes during a week of heavy rain and damaging floods in the state.

Forecasters say southern New Mexico will likely see heavy rain through the weekend and officials there were already preparing for possible flooding.

The Dona Ana County Fire and Emergency Services Department authorized 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.
