I came across that a little bit ago. Just crazy. I wouldn't have expected to see that in Baltimore.
Hopefully people were able to get to safety in time.

What's really crazy, is that they had it bad in 2016 too!

In parts of the country, I hear that manmade changes to the terrain, for housing and other things, makes flooding easier to happen, and more severe when it does happen. Maybe that part of Maryland is the victim of man-made terrain modifications.
