Portales received 3.5-4.0 inches of rain in 2-3 hrs causing the city to flood. The drainage in the city of Portales is poor and the streets were flooded. At an intersection, the driver's car was picked up and swept away by a cross current. The car floated backward down a drainage ditch, for almost 1 mile before being stopped by a sewer pipe. There was a mother and 2 small children in the car trapped by the raging floodwater. The Portales Fire Department was called and used the Ladder truck to rescue them from the car as seen on the video. All the family members were rescued and nobody was hurt.
