REEVES COUNTY - More flooding for the City of Pecos as more roads are being closed due to another rush of flood waters.

The Reeves County Sheriff's Office says the Pecos River has crested once again as waters are flowing on to FM 1216.

They say use extreme caution when traveling around this area.

On Friday, Pecos Mayor Venetta Seals said the debris under the Barstow Bridge off Business 20 and the Railroad Bridge had been removed which allowed the river to flow back to normal.

The ground near the river is still saturated.

All agencies that helped during the flooding situation in Pecos left on Friday.

The city and county have taken over since then.
