Service member missing after flooding strikes Maryland city

Service member missing after flooding strikes Maryland city

"Time to rebuild, that's it", restaurateur Michel Tersiguel said. But he notes the quaint old town has been through it all before, and he'll do his part to spur another revival.

"We're certainly making every effort to locate that individual", he said.

Now the locals face yet another massive cleanup, serious economic losses and a daunting comeback.

Officials are saying the flooding this year is far worse than it was in 2016, which left two people dead.

A flash flood emergency is in effect for Ellicott City and Catonsville through 10:30 p.m. Now, those who are pondering the next comeback don't even want to think about how much it might cost.

Founded in 1772 as a mill town, Ellicott City has for the past several decades catered to tourists with its historic charm and antique shops. Money from a Federal Emergency Management Agency grant had just arrived and was slated for repairs and construction, Kittleman said. Once behind the restaurant, the others saw Hermond go underneath the water and "not surface".

This initial progress was clouded by the discovery of a Severn, Maryland, man who had gone missing Sunday while trying to help a woman stranded amid rising waters.

A National Guardsman is missing after he was swept away in a flash flood in Ellicott City, Maryland, while searching for a woman's missing cat.

During a Sunday evening news conference, Kittleman said authorities aren't aware of any fatalities.

"Praying for the fearless veteran who has been reported missing following yesterday's bad flooding in Ellicott City", tweeted Maryland's Governor Larry Hogan, who declared a state of emergency in Howard County.

The National Weather Service said a flash flood warning has been issued for the area, calling it an "extremely unsafe situation" and urging motorists not to attempt to navigate flooded roads.

On Sunday, most of the 8 inches of rain that fell in Ellicott City - about 12 miles west of Baltimore - occurred during a three-hour period. Almost eight inches of rain fell in eight hours and floodwaters passed 24 feet, reports said.
