ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Storms that dumped rain on parts of New Mexico over the last few days are expected to leave the state Sunday.

The brunt of the storm system was felt by Roswell, where nearly 4 ½ inches of rain fell from Friday night to Saturday morning.

The storms set an all-time one-day rainfall record for Roswell and flooded some homes and streets in that city.

Other drought-stricken communities that received rainfall didn’t have flooding and instead absorbed the water.

The severe weather and large hail caused multiple car wrecks in northern New Mexico on Thursday as the storm system began its path through the state.

The state has been battered by drought and persistently high fire danger in recent years.
