The storms have left behind plenty of flooding and damage around the state. Governor Susana Martinez toured some of those places Saturday.
One of them was Las Vegas, N.M., where residents say they've never seen anything like this.
While the rain stopped for most of the day, flood waters run their paths through parts of Las Vegas.
“We'll take it however we can, and we'll repair what we need to repair because we're certainly desperate for rain,” Martinez said Saturday night.
Martinez toured parts of the state to see for herself what this week's rain left behind.
“Every agency possible is available to all communities in the state, because there are a lot of communities that have been affected,” she said.
Residents said it's been raining since Tuesday. Waters rushed to the top of a bridge Friday near West Las Vegas High School.
Overnight Friday, the water levels rose several feet, and local residents tell News 13, this is the most water they've seen there in years.
“This is really like once-in-a-lifetime type situation that I know about,” said John Gutierrez.
Resident Tony Sanchez added, “Since I lived here, it's never been that high before. It's more exciting because it's never happened before.”
City officials said the area got nearly 4.5 inches of rain, enough to raise water levels in the Montezuma dam several feet.
People enjoying the hot springs there Saturday said the water was near the road Friday.
"It was extremely high and just gushing,” said Gutierrez.
Las Vegas city officials were hoping the runoff would divert into Storrie Lake, which was built for flood control, but a levee broke in the canal.
Damages will be assessed in the coming week. Meanwhile, officials are thankful no one there was injured, and many ultimately hope for more rain.
Martinez has signed an executive order releasing $750,000 to repair the damage statewide. She said if more money is needed, they'll release more.
In Las Vegas alone, the city manager told News 13 damages may exceed $500,000.
