The southern portion of the county encountered flooding last night. Thunderstorms in the region produced heavy rains and caused the La Union dam to fail, prompting authorities to open up a shelter for evacuees.
The Dona Ana County Sheriff’s Department said there were reports of “significant flooding” in La Union as well as some flooding in Anthony and Vado too. The Gadsden Independent School District said a shelter had been opened in Anthony for those families forced from their homes due to the flooding. Assistance was being offered at the Anthony Elementary School at 600 4th Street. GISD said the school was canceled Friday for La Union Elementary students and staff due to the floods, and for everyone else in the district, there would be a two-hour delay.
