Wow, this looks really bad. Terrible situation for the folks living in these areas. Check out the insane videos below the link.



The areas of Ellicott City and Catonsville, outside Baltimore, were experiencing "catastrophic flash flooding," with another forecasted surge of water "imminent," according to the National Weather Service (NWS).



A state of emergency was declared in Maryland on Sunday as "catastrophic" flash floods and dramatic water rescues unfolded in and around Ellicott City amid heavy rains.

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!

Since this is the second flood in 3 years, will the residents remain there, and prepare for the next big flood?

I am sure they will.. much like the people in New Orleans, or south Florida.


I am just curious what has changed to bring floods like this, once is a It happens moment... twice is a trend.

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.

It's not really near Baltimore. It's up in the hills in the very rural parts well outside of Baltimore, and it's bascally a town that is situated in a steep canyon.

That is some serious flooding! I saw that type of flash flooding May ‘15 in Austin (that sh#t was legit biblical), but this is a close second... could be numero uno, if that “imminent” surge of water becomes reality.


Shoutout to my DMV peeps that may have family, friends, etc. and hoping for the best.

It's really not crazy- the town is in a deep canyon. That woman in the video is crazy though. What took her so long to ditch her car?? Those people were risking their lives to help her and she just kept sitting in her car. She's too dumb to have a license if she thought her car could ride that out.

Nope. The town is just situated in a canyon (I live near and have been to Ellicott City many times). This will happen again, just as it's happened before.

I'm so *ing confused right now.
The fact that I'm seeing this thread (and certain responses within it) is a massive coincidence right now. Last night I literally prayed to anything that might be listening for a sign regarding a huge life-changing decision I have to make, and today I was looking at Ellicott city and Catonsville. I don't know if the universe is telling me to move there or to stay the hell away.
Do I... just assume it's all a meaningless coincidence? Or do I assume this flood is that sign that I asked for? I DON'T KNOW. UGH.
