Devastating flooding

A state of emergency has been declared by Governor Larry Hogan after heavy rain and flash floods hit the historic Maryland city on Sunday. The floods are reminiscent of a July 2016 storm in the same area that killed two people and destroyed several local businesses.

The 39-year-old Eddison Hermond of Severn, Maryland remained missing Monday after flash flooding tore down a historic main street in a picturesque Maryland town and left a community heartbroken at seeing more devastation less than two years after rebuilding from another massive flood.

He was last seen trying to help a woman rescue her cat behind a restaurant while churning, brown waters ripped through Ellicott City’s flood-prone downtown.

The town was pounded by almost eight inches of rain Sunday. “There are no words to describe the devastation,” Howard County Executive Allan Kittleman said.

Parts of Howard County remained under a flood warning early Monday, but Storm Team4 says the threat for more heavy rain has passed, and the likelihood of more flash flooding is decreasing.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan declared a state of emergency and visited Ellicott City late Sunday. Hogan told the news media the city had recently received $1 million for flood control as a result of the 2016 floods.

Fire officials advised not to try to drive through or cross roads with standing water.

People who need shelter can go to the Roger Carter Community Center at 3000 Milltowne Drive, Howard County Recreation and Parks tweeted.
