"You can see behind me that the river is flowing, and it is flowing east towards Ward County," Venetta Seals, the Mayor of Pecos said.
The mayor was all smiles Tuesday as the river is beginning to flow, unclogged from debris, and away from the town.
"This is wonderful news for the residents of Pecos. I'm just really amazed with and appreciative of the crews that have been working out here to relocate all that debris," Seals said.
Hard work and sunny skies paid off as crews were able to use the debris to divert the water away from town.
The mayor says that Wednesday will be a bit calmer and a day to rest up, as Thursday may bring another wave of flooding.
