Ellicott City saw historic flooding again Sunday afternoon, just two years after it was hit by devastating floods in July 2016. There is now no information about casualties; however, one person has been reported missing.

He was last seen around 5:20 p.m. Sunday, during the worst of the flooding, and was reported missing early Monday, police said.

During a Sunday evening news conference, Kittleman said authorities aren't aware of any fatalities.

"Because we had a lot of rain [in the past two weeks], the ground is relatively saturated and so it might only take an inch per hour or an inch and a half per hour-rate to make things flood", he said.

"Eddison Hermond is my friend and fellow comrade", tweeted a woman with the Twitter handle Simply Ebony. "The main street became a river in less than 20 minutes".

440 PM - **FLASH FLOOD EMERGENCY** has been issued for Ellicott City in Howard County, Maryland.

Local resident Nathan Sowers, owner of the River House Pizza Co., an outdoor eatery in the old mill town's business district, said that after all the hard work rebuilding from the destructive 2016 flood he's feeling a bit overwhelmed at attempting yet another comeback.

After the deadly flooding of 2016, Howard County Executive Allan Kittleman said Ellicott City was reduced to a "war zone" and likened it to the set of a disaster movie. Yesterday, the community received almost 20.5cm of rain over six hours, but most of it fell during an intense, three-hour period, Muccilli said.

"They say this is a once-every-1,000-year flood and we've had two of them in two years", Hogan said while surveying the damage, according to Weather.com.

"He has not been located despite ongoing searches of the area", they added.

"We had a very, very heavy cell move over us, and it just unloaded and did not let up", he said.
