First a bit of preamble to this post, Back in October, 2016 this was the start of my blog entry.
The night of July 30th, 2016 changed Ellicott City. A major storm settled just west of the town and dumped 6″ of water in a couple of hours. Present day development left nowhere for the water to go, but down the Tiber River. As the rain continued the stream became a torrent. Since the town is built in the valley with hills on both sides of Main Street and the Tiber River, when the water overflowed the banks the only place for it to go was down Main Street, in spots reaching depths of over 6′. And to add the troubles, many of the buildings were built over the stream. The rushing water that ran under the buildings wasn’t gentle on them either. Most of the buildings on the stream side of Main Street have serious damage to the foundations.
It’s been over a year and Ellicott City has made quite a come-back. Not every business has returned but most are now open for business. There is no particular order for these photos as I walked down Main St. with my camera.
The cause of the previous damage, the Tiber River
, now little more than a trickle.
