A Terrifying, Deadly Storm Struck Maryland In 1868 And No One Saw It Coming

We all remember the recent Ellicott City flood that destroyed much of Main Street on July 30th, 2016. Not only is this spot prone to flooding, but it’s been happening for over a century. While flood waters have reached epic proportions time and time again, no year was quite as bad as 1868.

Do you remember any of the other Ellicott City floods throughout history? Several business have re-opened and you can follow the progress on the Visit Ellicott City Facebook page.
