Two dead in Ellicott City flooding

A state lawmaker suggested Monday that climate change could be to blame for the flash-flood that killed two people and destroyed much of historic Ellicott City Saturday night.

Established in 1772, Ellicott City is a mill town situated along the Patapsco River, home to several 18th and 19th-Century buildings.

According to police, floodwater began to sweep away the vehicle she was in. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan arrived in Ellicott City early Sunday morning and praised local emergency response while promising the state would do what it could to assist in the recovery efforts.

Hoffman said there is extensive structure damage to multiple businesses, residential areas, along with sidewalks and streets. Officials estimate damages could cost hundreds of millions of dollars.

The United Way teamed up with Howard County to set up the ECStrong fund to help those affected by the floods. Police say Watsula's relatives were able to escape and Blevins' girlfriend was rescued.

With the woman in his arms, he eventually struggles through the water back to the people waiting outside Ms Arditti's business, who eventually pull them to safety.

Sen. Barbara Mikulski visited the epicenter of the Ellicott City flooding not just for a photo-op, but to pledge federal support, she said.

Woman found dead in upstate NY, daughter charged
Mari Gilbert's other daughter, Shannan Gilbert, vanished in May 2010 after fleeing the home of a client in Oak Beach, New York. The remains were found strewn along several miles of thicket adjacent to Ocean Parkway, just east of Jones Beach.

"The other one, unfortunately, was carried downstream", Gardner said. More than 6 inches of rain in under three hours - a storm the National Weather Service says should happen only once every thousand years - turned the community's downtown into a muddy river.

A Facebook user, Sara Arditti, even shared a clip showing a group of bystanders forming a human chain to save a woman trapped in her vehicle. Record flooding was recorded by two gauges on the Patapsco River downstream from Ellicott City in Catonsville and near Elkridge.

Rosapepe, who has been critical of the state's preparedness for natural disasters, said he hopes to draw attention to how areas away from the coastline need to take climate change seriously. County officials tweeted Monday morning that 180 inoperable vehicles were towed from the Main Street area to a nearby high school and another 20 are still in the river.

Many residents are questioning the city's flood mitigation plan.

"It was insane, she said".

Kittleman said local authorities are working to open a disaster response center where residents hit by the flood can gather information.
