I first heard of the flooding earlier this evening. In my mind, I pictured the water rising to cover the street, then the sidewalk. People would walk by and marvel, then make eye contact with the people in their cars driving cautiously up the street...

NO!!! A slow, peaceful rise of water is NOT what happened. Watch the video posted by the OP and you will see some of the most violent and deadly brown water I have ever seen. Wow!!! It's moving quickly and aggressively.

Please keep safe, Baltimore!

Jesus, that's crazy!! That area of Ellicott City is prone to flooding. Thank God no one died.
I remember when that happened 2 years ago, too.

Happens every couple/few years there, but people still open businesses and buy there. Some real good video from the flood a couple of yrs ago, cars floating down the street, smashing into one another. Like class 4 Rapids going through town.

Radar showed 9.5”s in a very short time. No where for the water to go in that area really.

It’s historic Ellicott City, most here call it old Ellicott City. Very narrow street, rather steep for a portion of it leading to the Patapsco at the bottom, then an elevation on the other side headed to old Catonsville. No where for the water to go really on the Ellicott side from Rogers Ave/Ellicott Mills Drive down. And they didn’t improve water runoff when they rebuilt in ‘16 after the flood.

He is part of the Md National Gaurd. Was last seen a little after 5pm Sunday and they’re still looking for him.

Sadly, Sgt. Hermond's body has been found. He sacrificed his life to save a shop owner.

I hope I remember this gentleman soldier next year for Memorial Day. Mogadishu, Beirut, Belleau Wood, Antietam, Iwo Jima or old Ellicott City makes no difference to me. Sgt. Hermond gave his life in service to America and Americans.

May God bless Sgt. Hermond and welcome him into the Kingdom.

I saw this on the news over the weekend. Crazy. And to think this is the second major flood in 2 years. You wouldn't catch me rebuilding. I would be headed for higher ground.

What must be flood insurance rates there? No way I'd live through that twice.
