Flash Flooding in Ellicott City, MD
Ellicott City’s historic main street was transformed into a torrent when a flash flood swept away cars, parts of buildings, and even Main Street itself. Over 6 inches of rain fell in 2 hours the night of July 31 causing loss of life and great property damage.
Due to the catastrophic flooding, the area remains closed to the public while emergency workers shore up crumbling walls and repair critical infrastructure and roads.
An emergency evacuation shelter was set up at the nearby community center, causing Metanoia Church to “relocate” their Sunday morning activities from the center into the community, checking on friends, neighbors and business owners. Already well-connected the community, Metanoia is gearing up to be the point of contact for church and community volunteers eager to be of assistance once the emergency ban is lifted and specific needs are known. Metanoia’s efforts are being assisted by the Baptist Convention of Maryland/Delaware, Mid-Maryland Baptist Association and sister churches.
