BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Although many social media videos showed the damage in Ellicott City, other Maryland neighborhoods took a hit from Sunday’s heavy rainfall — including Baltimore City and parts of Baltimore County.

Tim Will, a resident of Frederick Avenue in Baltimore City, said he’s never seen anything like it before.

“This is the worst flood I’ve ever seen in all my years here,” Will said, noting water from nearby Northbend Road flooded their street too in addition to what they would normally expect.

His wife, Crystal, was nervous about the amount of water she was seeing.

“Quite honestly I was really scared, it was horrific seeing the trees go by – it looked like a river,” Crystal said.

Resident Courtney Hancock shared video of the damage on her Twitter account.

Around 7:44 p.m. Sunday, Hancock posted a video from the 5100 block of Frederick Avenue, which showed debris in the street, while flooded cars struggled to start.

Hancock shared another video Monday morning, showing the aftermath: residents sitting in the street while officials access the damage.

David McMillan of the city’s Office of Emergency Management said some residents saw water as high as seven feet — where basements and even first floors flooded.

“It’s going to take some time to time to clear debris, to basically restore the road,” McMillan said.

The city does not have a total number of residents affected by the flooding, but said residents should call 311 to report issues.

Frederick Avenue is closed to in both directions between Beechfield Ave. and Northbend Rd. as crews work to access the damage from the storms over the weekend.

Eastbound traffic will be detoured left on North Bend Rd., right on Old Edmonson Ave., right on Edmonson Ave., right on Athol Ave., and left back to Frederick Ave. While westbound traffic will be detoured right on Athol, left on Edmonson Ave., left on North Bend Rd., and right back onto Frederick Ave.

The city’s Department of Public Works has provided large dumpsters for storm-related trash.

If you can start your vehicle and it’s safe to drive, officials are asking that you move it to Stillmeadow Community Fellowship at 5110 Frederick Avenue. They ask that people document any damage before moving vehicles.

In Baltimore County, Catonsville and Dundalk were also hit hard by flooding.

Baltimore County’s emergency management shared these photos of flooding in Catonsville where more than 10 inches of rain fell, according to the National Weather Service.

Three people were rescued Sunday afternoon from a rock in the middle of the Gunpowder River. Crews were dispatched to dozens of calls for vehicles trapped in rising water, flooded basements, washed-out roads and other issues.

County officials also reported two sanitary sewer overflows following Sunday’s flooding.

The Patapsco Sewage Pumping Station, located at 4612 Annapolis Road in Halethorpe, discharged 607,000 gallons into the Patapsco River. The overflow was stopped Monday morning.

The Frederick Road Pumping Station, located at 1809 Frederick Road in Catonsville, released 47,000 gallons into the Patapsco River. The overflow stopped Sunday evening.

As a precaution, the Patapsco River should be avoided. The Baltimore County Department of Health will issue water contact advisories when necessary on the Department’s website.

According to officials, no one has been reported missing in Baltimore County, and no serious injuries have been reported.

Baltimore County officials are conducting assessment of damage Monday.
