CARLSBAD, N.M. - People in New Mexico are waiting it out just north of the flooding.

About 730 people are at the PR Leyva Junior High in Carlsbad and the Rec Center in Artesia.

They've been evacuated from the SPK Campground.

Emergency response is waiting for the water to go down.

It may be after the weekend until they can take a look at the damage.

The Salvation Army and the Red Cross are working to help the evacuees.
