Two days after the recent flooding in historic Ellicott City, Preservation Maryland Executive Director Nicholas A. Redding joined host Bryan Nehman on WBAL 1090 News Now radio to discuss the cause and possible recovery strategies.
When, a week ago today, I last visited Ellicott City, I found a community full of hope and potential. Just two years shy of the devastating 2016 flood, Main Street bustled with activity and new life. Just a few short days later, that new reality was shattered by a ferocious wall of water.
On the afternoon of May 27, 2018, Ellicott City, Maryland endured yet another devastating flood— the second time in less than two years. Preservation Maryland stands ready to support the rebuilding, recovery, and rehabilitation of this historic community.
