A Tornado Watch is in effect for much of southeastern New Mexico until 9 p.m, according to the National Weather Service.

The watch went into effect at 2:25 p.m. for Chaves, De Baca, Eddy, Lea, Lincoln and Otero counties.

A Tornado Watch is a designation for when tornadoes are possible in and near a watch area, according to the National Weather Service website.

People are encouraged to go to a safe room, make sure supplies are ready and be prepared to act quickly.

“Be ready to act quickly if a warning is issued or you suspect a tornado is approaching. Acting early helps to save lives,” the website states.
