A vicious flash flood ripped through Ellicott City, Md., Saturday night, leaving at least one person dead and two missing as it destroyed roads, homes and businesses.

.

Video and photos shot after the flood depict a ravaged downtown: bricks torn from sidewalks, streets caved in, cars overturned, storefronts ripped opened, first floors gutted. Gov. Larry Hogan (R) declared a state of emergency.

.

A womans body was found Sunday morning, according to town spokesman Andy Barth, who noted that the death toll may rise. At least two residents are missing.

.

Historic Main Street looked like a scene from a disaster movie, said Howard County Executive Allan Kittleman (D). I know there are going to be a lot of people who will lose their homes and apartments and businesses that will have a hard time rebuilding.

.

On Sunday morning  when the 244-year-old towns epicenter would normally have bustled with visitors  Kittleman and Rep. Elijah Cummings (D) joined Hogan to tour the wreckage of an area that has been struck by floods before.

.

Weve got a long road ahead of us, Hogan said. We are going to do everything we can to immediately help people, make sure there is housing, get things back on track.

.

One dramatic video posted to Facebook shows three men forming a human chain through the raging water to reach a woman trapped inside her car.

.

I cant do this, the woman yells as she crawls halfway out.

.

You have to, someone shouts back.

.

Still too far away to reach the woman, the man closest to her lets go of the chain and, just after he is nearly swept away, takes the driver in his arms and drags her to safety.

.

Officials asked residents to remain patient as emergency crews assess the damage and work to ensure structures are safe. Hogan and other elected officials said the county, state and federal governments will work together to make sure the affected area is rebuilt.

.

This is not going to be cleared up in a day or two, Kittleman said.

.

Cummings, who has an office on Main Street and knows many of the citys business owners, said the rebuilding effort will take a lot of money and a lot of patience.

.

Hundreds offered condolences on social media to the unincorporated town of 68,000.

Just before midnight, midnight, to make it possible to access state resources. At least four roads were closed, and emergency shelters opened.

.

County officials reported numerous water rescues and evacuations, some involving motorists trapped in the sudden torrents.

.

High water also was reported in Saturday night Montgomery County. Georgia Avenue at Brookeville Road in Montgomery was reported closed in both directions, with a foot of water flowing across the road.

.

In Baltimore County, authorities said flooding and rain were especially severe on the west side, with many calls for rescue from stalled vehicles.

.

Official rainfall figures from Baltimores Inner Harbor illustrated the intensity of Saturday nights rainfall. The National Weather Service reported 2.28 inches in three hours. Almost 1 inches fell between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m.

.

Reports indicated that rain was considerably heavier in Howard County.

.

About 900 homes and businesses were reported without electricity in Baltimores southwestern corner.

.

.

The days downpours came after an afternoon of oppressive heat, raising Washingtons temperature to 90 for the 10th consecutive day and the 22nd time this month.

.

For all the months heat, no high-temperature records were set, and only one was tied  the 100 degrees on July 25.
