Floodwaters tear through town near Baltimore, while Deep South braces for Alberto

Flash floods tore through a city in Maryland on Sunday, as the Deep South braced for the first storm of hurricane season.

Floodwaters roared through the streets of downtown Ellicott City, Md., just west of Baltimore, after torrential rain and thunderstorm warnings. Two people were killed in the same city by devastating flooding in 2016.

“This is an EXTREMELY DANGEROUS AND POTENTIALLY CATASTROPHIC situation,” the National Weather Service tweeted, urging residents to seek higher ground. No deaths or injuries had yet been reported, though the local fire department tweeted “Rescuers are in the water making rescues.”

In case it’s not clear yet, stay away from Main Street.
