ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Heavy rain from the Odile storm system is coming into New Mexico – possibly as much as 8 inches.

Gov. Susana Martinez has called out the National Guard, deploying soldiers to strategic locations around the state, especially places scorched by wildfire where heavy rainfall could cause serious damage.

This declaration frees up $750,000 in state money to help communities respond and recover from storm damage.

Meanwhile, the Red Cross is setting up shelter in Sunland Park due to flooding in southern New Mexico.

So far, they’re only on standby by in case assistance is needed.
