PRESIDIO - With Hurricane Norbert headed toward Mexico's Baja California coast, West Texas officials are preparing for more flooding in the already saturated border town of Presidio.
They plan to activate an emergency operations center Monday in Presidio. With winds of 100 mph, Norbert was expected to hit Mexico early Saturday. Its remnants were expected to cause problems for West Texas next week.
Residents of Presidio have already spent weeks wondering if an earthen levee holding back the swollen Rio Grande would break. Last month, the river eclipsed it's banks, filling a nearly quarter-mile wide channel between levees on each side of the border.
