Flash flood rages down historic Maryland mainstreet, kills two

Main Street slopes dramatically toward the river and has always been susceptible to flooding.

Seth Hoffman, a government spokesperson for Howard County, told weather.com in an interview that gas leaks occurred in downtown Ellicott City along Main Street and that crews were now assessing the damage to pinpoint the location of the leaks. "He's a true hero".

The video showed the efforts of the group to reach the vehicle.

The National Weather Service had declared flash floods and 60 miles per hour wind gusts alerts for Baltimore City, Anne Arundel, Carroll, Frederick, Howard, and Montgomery.

"He was incredibly fearless and reckless, and I was impressed", Dempster told the News. Other areas nearby received heavy rainfall for only about 30 to 45 minutes.

His art gallery was completely destroyed by the storm, with more than $100,000 worth of equipment ruined in the downpour. Police said several people were trapped in partially submerged vehicles in the Woodberry area.

Video and photos shot in the flood's aftermath depict a ruined downtown: bricks torn from sidewalks, cars overturned, windows smashed, storefronts ripped opened.

Cameras captured the shocked faces of residents who walked through the mud-covered streets shortly after the storm.

But over the years, the river has also unleashed its power on the town, wreaking havoc as raging waters overflow the riverbank, causing devastating flash floods to sweep through the streets.

"This is by far the worst devastation Ellicott City has seen in decades", he told reporters.
