May 15 storm

Six people, including this child, were rescued from three vehicles trapped in floodwater at North Market Street and Schifferstadt Boulevard in Frederick.

Parts of Frederick County were inundated with hail and water as part of an intense storm system Tuesday evening.

A flood warning was put in place until 11:45 p.m. as some roads were overtaken by water and first responders were called to several water rescues.

Up to 3 inches of rain had already fallen in parts of the county by 8:38 p.m.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall was causing flooding of small creeks and streams, streets and other low-lying spots.

The Frederick Police Department and other emergency services encouraged residents to stay indoors for the duration of the storm.

Two-inch chunks of hail were reported in parts of the county.

Remind me again how the proposed hotel is of similarity to the carroll creek project?


While raising the square corner, it may be wise to incorporate a drain across Market St along the crosswalk. It could then be piped below grade the half block to the flood control system.
