Ellicott City, Maryland flooding

The Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. area has seen massive downpours over the last 24 hours with more rain in sight. This was before tropical storm Alberto even made landfall in Florida.

While it isn’t clear if Alberto will add even more rain later this week, a small Maryland town experienced so much rain that flood waters carried cars down their downtown streets. Some areas have seen as much as 6 inches of rain an hour.

This weekend’s storm marks the second time in the past two years that Ellicott City suffered under a significant flood. However, many residents believe that this flooding was far worse than the July 30, 2016 storm.

Authorities have asked everyone, including the media, to get to higher ground as soon as possible.

The Baltimore area should be dry for the next several days.

Check out some of the video and photos of the rushing waters below:

Fox legal analyst: Ukraine scandal is ‘far more serious’ than what Mueller dug up on Trump

Published

on

Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano on Monday told Fox Business host David Asman that President Donald Trump's now-infamous phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is a serious case of corruption that cannot be ignored.

Although Asman tried to make the story about the actions of former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Napolitano said that what Trump has done appears far worse than anything the former vice president did.

"This is the most serious charge against the president, far more serious than what Bob Mueller dug or dragged up against him," Napolitano said. "If there was a quid pro quo -- it does appear as though a quarter of a billion dollars in defensive weaponry was held back for a period of time while these... conversations were going on between the presidents."
