After flood, Kittleman calls on council to extend state of emergency to Sept. 20

As Ellicott City recovers from a flash flood last month that left two people dead, pummeled dozens of businesses and displaced 190 residents, county officials said they are committed to reduce the risk of future flooding in the flood-prone historic district.

Although the storm caused the Patapsco River to rise 13 feet in nearly two hours, Ryan Miller, director of the county's Office of Emergency Management, told the Howard County Council Monday evening that the causes of the storm were "complex" and warrant stronger flood mitigation techniques.

"It's our intent to put things back better," Miller said.
