Victim's Body Found After Maryland Flash Flooding

Brown water rushed through Ellicott City's historic Main Street, topping buildings and cars, as the Patapsco River swelled to a record-breaking level.

Authorities say Ellicott City, on the west bank of Maryland's Patapsco River, is prone to periodic flooding.

This tragedy comes less than two years after the horrific summer 2016 floods in Maryland, but based on the damage alone, police are guessing the destruction is worse this time around.

As rescuers continue searching for Hermond, there were no reports of deaths or major injuries as of early Monday, Kittleman said. Gas lines were shut down and a historic building fell, he said.

During a press briefing late Sunday, Howard County Executive Allan Kittleman was emotional in discussing the situation, saying he believes the damage has exceeded a devastating flood that occurred in the town just two years ago.

Authorities on Tuesday are advising residents to stay away from the affected area. Particularly worrying, Kittleman said, is a 25- to 30-foot-wide hole just north of Main Street, where the ground and road appear to have buckled under the weight of the flooding.

Some people reported hearing a blaring alarm during the flooding.
