Severe flooding in central Maryland has left at least two dead and hundreds of others picking up the pieces. The flash flooding struck Ellicott City on Saturday night. That's when officials say residents Jessica Watsula and Joseph Anthony Blevins were swept away in their cars in separate incidents.
Howard County Executive Allan Kittleman described the scene: "Cars everywhere, sidewalks missing, roads partially gone, utility poles down, cars on top of cars."
