Howard County Executive Allan Kittleman said his priorities are finding Hermond and assessing the damage the waters have inflicted on the area. But first responders and rescue officials were still going through the muddied, damaged downtown and conducting safety checks. "The teams are already out there helping others". Residents were urged to avoid the area, and those trapped were told to seek higher ground and await rescue. The flooding reached the second floors of some buildings, and one building in Ellicott City's historic downtown area has fallen.
The previous massive flood left two people dead in July 2016. Money from a Federal Emergency Management Agency grant had just arrived and was slated for repairs and construction, Kittleman said. "A cold front could trigger a shower or thunderstorm on Tuesday afternoon, but we're not expecting anything to the intensity of Sunday's rainfall". Pls continue to monitor social media for updates. He said Hermond was not on duty Sunday evening and had not had guard training during the weekend. We didn't give in in 2016.
