Joe Baca, intergovernmental liasion and public relations director for Pueblo of Santa Clara, said rain on Sunday caused flooding in some areas of the Pueblo.

He said the Pueblo’s governor and some forestry workers who were evaluating the flooding ended up getting stranded and a New Mexico National Guard helicopter was summoned to evacuate them from the wilderness.

Other Pueblo residents sought shelter at a local hotel, but Pueblo officials said the flooding wasn’t bad enough to set up a full shelter and sent everyone home.
