MOGOLLON, N.M. (KRQE) - The village of Mogollon in southwest New Mexico remained isolated Monday.
Over the weekend, flood waters badly damaged the historic town and washed out the only road into the community.
The scene coming over Mogollon this afternoon from Sky News 13 showed a deep, deep rut worn in along the entire main street of the village.
Flood waters came through the area and literally erased the entire road all the way through town, damaged some of the buildings and swept through some of the vehicles that were parked along the roadway here.
It did not look like anything collapsed and word is that no one was hurt, but this is massive damage for this historic village up in the Gila country.
The road both in and out of Mogollon – both the road that goes out to the east into the forest and the road that approaches down in the Glenwood area – have been wiped out completely from about a mile away from the village itself to the west – and then literally the entire road through the entire village going to the east.
Folks are trying to collect bottled water and supplies to get to the residents who live in Mogollon, but no one has made it from the outside into the village yet. They're making that effort this afternoon.
There is similar damage to reports in Alma – about 10 miles west of Mogollon. Homes and roads are washed away there, too, from the same water that rushed through Mogollon.
Parts of the road up to the famous "Catwalk Trail" in the Gila are reported to be washed out, too.
