Residents and business owners of the historic Ellicott City continued cleaning up Tuesday after Sunday’s flood that tore down trees, washed away sidewalks, and wreaked havoc on homes and stores.

A body of a man was found in the Patapsco River Tuesday across the Baltimore County line from Howard County following a devastating flood Sunday night in Ellicott City.

Torrential storms pushed swollen streams over their banks in the Baltimore region over the weekend, causing two deaths and major damage in Ellicott City and tearing up businesses in the Woodberry section of Baltimore.

Early Monday the clean-up efforts were well underway as trucks with heavy equipment and police cruisers streamed down Ellicott Mills Drive onto Ellicott City’s historic Main Street, each vehicle followed by a cloud of dirt.
