The Eastern New Mexico News reports Roosevelt County Superintendent Ricky Lovato said Tuesday he recently took representatives of the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Department of Homeland Security on a tour of roads damaged by flooding in August.
County Manager Amber Hamilton said the representatives took pictures of 75 percent of the damaged roads, and asked for information for each road.
Hamilton says a declaration could allow the county to access disaster relief funding.
Officials hope to have more information in 30 days.
