A tornado tore through the northern New Mexico town of Cimarron, demolishing a bank, a post office and a beauty salon as well as flipping several mobile homes. State police said six people were injured, two seriously. Five of the injured were taken to a hospital in Raton, about 60 miles east. "The bank's gone--and the bank is made out of brick. It took the roof, parts of the walls," said Beaver Segotta, general manager of the Pacific Studs lumberyard.

The state stepped up its emergency relief effort for battered livestock ranchers, dropping more than 100 tons of food to herds stranded by fierce snowstorms. Six C-130 military cargo planes rumbled just 300 feet above the snow-covered high plains of eastern New Mexico, dumping 1-ton bales of hay to starving cattle and sheep. State officials say at least 5,000 animals have been killed by a series of snowstorms since Christmas Eve and that about 180,000 more are at risk.

Thick, wet snow stranded travelers along major highways and shut down the town of Roswell, where so much snow all at once is an alien presence. The National Guard was sent out with all-terrain vehicles to help clear major highways, and Gov. Gary Johnson declared a state of emergency for counties in the southeast, opening the door to disaster relief money.
