Body found of National Guardsman swept away by flood waters

Max Robinson  DieRobinsonDie  TwitterThe streets are flooded in Ellicott City Md

Searchers on Tuesday scouring a river alongside an historic Maryland town ripped apart by flash flooding found the body of a man last seen being swept away by the raging waters as it gutted shops and pushed parked cars into swollen tributaries.

Howard County police identified him today as 39-year-old Eddison Hermond of Severn.

In the restaurant, a woman approached Mr. Hermond and others saying she was trying to find her cat behind the building, and when they went to help her look, people saw Mr. Hermond go under the water but not resurface, police said.

Sarah Lopez was at a restaurant, attending a birthday party with Hermond when the flooding began, she told CNN. He described Hermond as a man who dedicated his life to helping others.

Thirty rescues were carried out into Monday morning, officials said.

Allan Kittleman, the Howard County Executive told NBC News: "I can say my heart is broken thinking about what the people are going through here".

"We'll see. It takes a lot of money and a lot of time", he said.

Some business owners in picturesque Ellicott City - established in 1772 as a mill town along the Patapsco River surround by hills - say they're determined to rebuild after Sunday's devastation.

Over Maryland, a weak weather system crossing this band of moisture, intensified dramatically and a line of thunderstorms formed, crossing directly over Ellicott City.

Videos uploaded to social media showed completely flooded streets, stranded cars and people trapped in buildings looking through windows as water flowed by. Almost eight inches of rain fell in eight hours and floodwaters passed 24 feet, reports said. He promised that the affected area would receive "every bit of assistance" possible.

Destroyed chunks of roadway rest after being washed into a riverbed in flood-ravaged Ellicott City, Maryland.

The National Weather Service said a flash flood warning has been issued for the area, calling it an "extremely risky situation" and urging motorists not to attempt to navigate flooded roads. One sight during the flood: a handmade, white flag hung from an upper story of a Main Street building bearing the letters SOS.

A massive flood has wreaked havoc in Maryland where businesses and residents had just managed to get back on their feet after a devastating flood less than two years ago.
