ROSWELL, N.M. (KRQE) – People in south Roswell are still dealing with widespread street flooding. The Roswell Chaves County emergency manager took an aerial tour west of Roswell on Tuesday afternoon. They discovered a breach in a levee.
The breach was about a mile west of the city, causing a continual flow of water into town and the flooding is keeping officials from repairing the damage. “The flood commission that maintains those structures. They can’t get out there and repair it because there’s still too much water there,” said Todd Wildermuth, public information officer for the City of Roswell.
That flooding still have several streets in south Roswell shut down.
