High Water at Hillsboro Sep 12, 2014
A small debris flow came down Percha Creek, Friday the 12th, 2014. Percha Creek drains from the Black Range of New Mexico and flows through the small towns of Kingston and Hillsboro. The Silver Fire burned a significant portion of the Black Range last year. There have been several high water events since then, a debris flow of any size is unusual at this point. The event went (basically) unnoticed in Hillsboro. Land slides associated with the rains closed the main highway across the Black Range for a time.
