People in parts of Rio Arriba County were urged to evacuate due to flooding late Sunday night.

The evacuation order affected people along Highway 68 in the areas of Alcalde and Velarde.

Travel in the area is discouraged.

Also, heavy hail on Highway 68 into Taos has frozen over, making the road very dangerous to drive on.
