Monsoon rains provide some relief to drought-stricken New Mexico

Afternoon storms have started spreading across New Mexico, dropping rain, and even causing flooding in some places. … As of late last week, the state’s largest river, the Rio Grande, was dry for about 22 miles in the San Acacia reach south of Socorro and for about 4 miles in the Isleta reach above Peralta. To prevent more drying, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation has been pumping water from what’s called the Low Flow Conveyance Channel (LFCC) into the channel of the Rio Grande.
