Port officials say all cross-border traffic, while lighter than normal, is still moving and that they are experiencing minimal flooding in one of DeConcini's vehicle lanes. The Dennis DeConcini and Mariposa Ports are experiencing some water accumulation but officers continue to process travel through the area in a timely fashion. The Tucson Field Office will continue to monitor the weather situation and update the public of any changes at the ports.
