Max Robinson  DieRobinsonDie  Twitter Rescuers search for people during a flood in Ellicott City Md

The body of an Army National Guardsman who went missing on Sunday amid flash floods in Ellicott City, Maryland, has been found, authorities announced Tuesday. After a break in military service, he joined the Maryland National Guard in 2009.

The floodwaters have turned the streets of Ellicott City into muddy rivers, sweeping away cars and ripping small buildings from their foundations.

Two people were killed and about $10 million worht of damage occurred in the 2016 flood.

A small window of time to survey losses and gather belongings will be given to those in the flood damaged areas, officials say. Lopez told ABC News that he and Hermond chose to wait out the storm and began to help employees sandbag the restaurant's back door as floodwaters rose.

"No body expected another storm of this magnitude to come through two years later because, as I said, they were only supposed to happen every 1,000 years", the governor said.

One person is missing in flash flooding that struck historic Ellicott City. Emergency responders conducted 30 rescues Monday morning as they continued their search for a missing man, identified as Eddison Hermond. He hasn't been seen since about 5:20 p.m. Sunday, when brown water was raging down Main Street.

Allan Kittleman, the Howard County Executive told NBC News: "I can say my heart is broken thinking about what the people are going through here". Officials said the weekend flooding was "worse than" the July 2016 storm that wreaked havoc on the city of almost 66,000 people.

"We'll see. It takes a lot of money and a lot of time, a lot of energy".

Kittleman said the missing man was in his 40s and was not a resident of the historic district.

Residents and shop owners were asked to stay away due to safety concerns and told to monitor social media for updates.

"Praying for the fearless veteran who has been reported missing following yesterday's bad flooding in Ellicott City", Hogan tweeted Tuesday. Emergency crews performed at least 30 water rescues.

A vehicle that was swept into the riverbank rests just off Main Street in flood-ravaged Ellicott City, Md., Monday, May 28, 2018.
