ELLICOTT CITY, Md. — Flash floods struck a Maryland community wracked by similar flooding in 2016, authorities said, and water rescues were being carried out as raging brown waters surged through the streets Sunday. CBS Baltimore showed photos and video of turbulent water rushing down Main Street in Ellicott City, some 13 miles west of Baltimore. That’s in the same area devastated by flash flooding in July 2016. There was no immediate report of any injuries.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan declared a state of emergency for the stricken area.

Footage of Sunday’s flash flooding showed water surging around cars and pickup trucks and coursing over the top of their wheels. The Howard County Fire & EMS agency tweeted that water was above the first floor of some buildings and there were reports of some building collapses.
