Ellicott City Flood Live Streaming
A Maryland city was crushed late Sunday evening after 6-crawls of substantial rain caused a downtown glimmer surge. Real harm is accounted for and numerous autos have been cleared away. Scenes of devastating damage and feelings of aching familiarity overwhelmed residents of a small Maryland town Sunday as flash floods ripped through the area, topping similar havoc wreaked on Ellicott City in 2016.
Although as of late Sunday there were still no reports of casualties, videos and photos broadcast on regional media outlets and social media platforms showed huge walls of brown water ripping through the town, which is 13 miles west of Baltimore along the east bank of Maryland’s Patapsco River.
Rescue workers were out in force helping the stranded, braving flood waters that in some instances lifted automobiles to the first floor of some buildings. Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, who declared a state of emergency for the flooded community, visited the area as the sun began to go down.
The National Weather Service said a flash flood warning was issued for the area through Sunday evening, calling it an “extremely dangerous situation” and urging motorists not to attempt to navigate flooded roads.
Ellicott City was all the while recuperating from a blaze surge two years prior that slaughtered two and constrained the noteworthy city to modify a lot of its Main Street. Occupants said Sunday’s surge appeared to be surprisingly more dreadful than the tempest in July 2016 – which was called an amazingly uncommon “one-in-1,000 year occasion,” and cost the city a huge number of dollars in harms.
A crisis cautioning was issued by the National Weather Service at 4:40 p.m.
