"It is equally devasting, if not more so, than the flood of July 30, 2016", county spokesman Mark Miller told the paper. As he spoke, Maryland Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford put a comforting hand on Kittleman's back. She said that this flood looks a lot worse than the flood nearly two years ago. Of the city's residents and business owners, Kittleman says "they are faced with the same daunting task again".

After floods devastated Ellicott City in 2016, killing two people, it was called a "once in 1,000 years flood". On Sunday, the community received almost 8 inches (20.32 centimeters) of rain over a six-hour period, but most of it fell during an intense, three-hour period, Muccilli said. "I do encourage everybody to stay away from Ellicott City, if you're not there". On Sunday, most of the rain fell during a three-hour period. The executive order allows the state of Maryland to coordinate support to local jurisdictions experiencing flooding conditions. He said they are facing a similar emergency now.

A Baltimore suburb was placed under a state of emergency on Sunday as flash floods inundated streets with several feet of water.

The newspaper reports that the swirling waters reached the second flood of one building at its height.

In some areas, water is above the first flood of buildings, fire officials said. Larry Hogan, who declared a state of emergency for the flooded community, visited the area as the sun began to go down.

"The place looked terrific" after renovations from the last flood, he told CNN.

He said: "We're just asking people to not come to Ellicott City".

The fast rising flood waters came Sunday evening during a heavy Memorial Day weekend rain storm and sent cars floating down Main Street.

The group of 10 then scrambled uphill through the woods toward the Castle Angelo, a castle-like home built in the 1830s into the rocks above Ellicott City, overlooking the Patapsco River. No injuries have been reported. But information was still preliminary. Just to the south of Ellicott City, radar indicated as much as 7 to 8 inches had fallen. The agency added that water had risen above the first floor of buildings in some areas and that it had received reports of building collapses.

Some Baltimore County roads also have been flooded.

In 2016, the small town's main street turned into a raging river, carrying away cars and other debris and forcing dramatic rescues of people trapped in the flood. Howard County officials announced they were opening an emergency operations center to manage its response.
