"There are a lot of people whose lives are going to be devastated again, and they've been working so hard to come back and we just need to be there for them and to tell them ... all of our resources are there to help them", Kittleman said.

"This is where we're one Howard again, and we'll be one Ellicott City", he said. It was their second in two years.

The body of a Black National Guardsman who disappeared during treacherous floods in Maryland on Sunday was found in the Patapsco River Tuesday afternoon, Howard County police confirmed to Baltimore's WBAL.

"#HoCoPolice are continuing the search for Eddison Hermond, 39, of Severn, last seen at appx". After the flood began, Hermond was assisting merchant Kate Bowman, who had escaped through a window with her cat. He was assigned to Camp Fretterd Military Reservation in Reistertown, Maryland, but was not on active duty at the time of the accident.

Hermond has been a member of the Maryland Army National Guard since 2009, a National Guard spokesman said.

Jessica Ur, a server at Pure Wine Cafe on the city's Main Street, told The Baltimore Sun that she watched as gushing waters swept three or four parked cars down the street.

Local resident Nathan Sowers owns the River House Pizza Co., an outdoor eatery in the old mill town's business district.

The historic area was hit with similar heavy flooding in the summer of 2016.

"We got a lot done today", Irvin said. The department also said swift water units from as far away as Northern Virginia were coming to help.
