Governor Susana Martinez has signed an executive order declaring a state of emergency due to flooding caused by the heavy rains the state has experienced over the past several days.

The order affects the entire state and makes funding available to the state from the Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management to assist in recovery efforts.

“Through this Executive Order, I have directed state government resources to ensure the safety and well being of everyone affected by these heavy storms,” Governor Martinez said. “As the heavy rains continue, I encourage all New Mexicans to continue to pay attention to your local weather forecast and be aware of warnings wherever you are.”
