Maryland Recovers After Ravaging Floodwaters
Historic, low-lying Ellicott City, MD, was ravaged by floodwaters Saturday night, killing two people and damaging homes and businesses.
Workers walk past a hill in front of the A.M.E. Baptist Church that was washed away in the overnight flash flood that hit Ellicott City, Md., on July 31, 2016.
The city received almost 6 inches of rain from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday, the equivalent of a full month's normal rainfall, Howard County Executive Allan Kittleman said.
