LA UNION, N.M. - Days after heavy rains and strong floods washed out roads, damaged water systems and destroyed homes, New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez announced that she'll visit La Union to see the damage first hand.

Representatives of Martinez's office said the governor would be in la Union around 4:30 p.m. today.

She will be there to examine the damaged areas affected by the flooding.

Martinez toured the flood-ravaged Gila region Tuesday and visited Carlsbad on Wednesday, her office said. Flooding in Carlsbad prompted evacuations last week.
