Gov. Larry Hogan issued the order and opened the Maryland Emergency Management Agency to help in any way possible. "This is an EXTREMELY DANGEROUS AND POTENTIALLY CATASTROPHIC situation and you must move to HIGHER GROUND IMMEDIATELY AND STAY AWAY FROM ANYWHERE WHERE WATER IS MOVING", tweeted the National Weather Service.

A central Maryland town was hit by flash flooding Sunday afternoon, less than two years after a devastating flash flood blamed for two deaths and millions of dollars in damage.

It is the same street devastated by flash flooding in July 2016.

Portalli's Italian Restaurant employee Arianna Wilgar said the water had reached the establishment's second floor. Residents were urged to avoid the area, and those trapped were told to seek higher ground and await rescue. On Sunday, the community received almost 8 inches (20 centimeters) of rain over a 6-hour period, but most of it fell during an intense, 3-hour period, Muccilli said.

"Flooding in Ellicott City rivaling the flooding incident in 2016", the Howard County fire and rescue department tweeted. They're saying rescuers will come to help. People are being urged to not call 911 as long as they are in a safe space.

Water rescues are being reported in Ellicott City, Maryland.

YouTuber and critic John "TotalBiscuit" Bain dies at 33
He created an empire with the Cynical Brit YouTube and Twitch channels, both of which Bain has opted to leave to his wife, Genna. He was a champion of many smaller, indie titles, producing videos where he shared his first impressions of new titles.

Meanwhile, severe weather and heavy rain are affecting conditions throughout the DMV.

Radar indicates 3 to 6 inches of rain has fallen in just two hours and it continues to rain heavily.

Two people died as a result.

"It is equally devasting, if not more so, than the flood of July 30, 2016", county spokesman Mark Miller told the paper. Those seeking shelter can go to the Roger Carter Community Center at 3000 Milltowne Drive.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood emergency late in the afternoon for Ellicott City, a town 10 miles west of Baltimore, warning of an "extremely risky and potentially catastrophic situation".
