The storm has torn through the coastline of Maryland - leaving the well-populated town of Ellicott City nearly submerged under the raging flood waters - and it's a real eye-opener for East Coast Americans.

The rapid and raging waters can be seen roaring down Main Street, tearing away street signs, small structures, and demolishing nearby businesses in its path. If you watch closely, you may see your neighbor’s car floating down the road.

The floods are eerily reminiscent of the 2016 floods the region suffered under, with six inches of rain pouring down in an unbelievable ninety minutes, leaving roads to appear as if they're rivers.

The sheer force of which the water is ripping through the city streets is just phenomenal, causing multiple water rescues to occur throughout the day with several people in danger fearing for their lives.

Residents are trying to take cover with a total accumulation of rainfall being documented at somewhere near ten inches in the last twenty-four hours, and flash flood warnings remaining all across nearby counties.

This comes amidst the ongoing threat across the gulf coast from subtropical storm Alberto, which is believed to be heading into the eventual direction of Maryland by Tuesday after making landfall today along the southern coast of Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana.

The 2016 flooding in Ellicott City was such a rare occurrence that meteorologists had referred to it as a “one in a one-thousand-year storm,” although if the weather continues to bear down upon the state, it could happen again.

The footage coming out of Ellicott City today is just astonishing, and there's worry from locals as to just how many people may suffer as a result of the scope of the flooding.

There are no buildings which have been reported to have been completely destroyed as of yet, but as some of the footage shows, there will be no doubt heavy flood damage and repairs in the coming weeks.

The National Weather Service had sent out an emergency warning stating that “everyone should seek higher ground,” as we have no choice to witness the remainder of the storm take its toll upon the already badly bruised Ellicott City.

Our thoughts and prayers remain with those affected by the storm, as we at The Goldwater will continue to bring you the latest as it develops.

Look for a lot of low mileage cars to show up on street corners for sale.

In 2016 the Media called that flood, in the same general area, Once in a 1000 years flood.

Now 2 years later I guess we are in a New Millennium.
