People in the 16 Springs Canyon community near Cloudcroft are being asked to evacuate because of flooding.

A shelter has been set up at Cloudcroft High School.

Drivers are urged to stay off the roads because of debris and flooding.

People are also urged to avoid using cell phones unless it is necessary.

That is because emergency responders need the bandwidth.
