Hermond, a National Guard member and U.S. Air Force veteran, was found in the Patapsco River, just across the Baltimore County line. "A lady approached an indicated she was trying to find her cat, which was missing behind the building", Police Chief Gary Gardner said at a briefing.

"We're just tossing around ideas", Beth Czyryca, one of Hermond's friends, told the newspaper. There is now no information about casualties; however, one person has been reported missing.

The river rose 17.8 feet in two hours Sunday afternoon, to 24.1 feet, a record from the previous high of 23.6 feet.

The latest catastrophic incident came almost two years after a significant flooding was caused due to almost six inches of rain in under two hours time.

Local officials say the damage might be even worst this time around. He said others made it out of the area safely.

Howard County Executive Allan Kittleman said that his immediate priorities are finding the missing man and assessing the condition of damaged buildings that housed shops, restaurants and families.

Most debris has been moved from Main Street, Howard County Public Works Director Jim Irvin said at a news conference Tuesday updating the public on their efforts. 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. Money from a Federal Emergency Management Agency grant had just arrived and was slated for repairs and construction, Kittleman said.

The discovery comes after Ellicott City, Md., was hit over the weekend by widespread flooding. On Sunday the city saw 8 inches over six hours, with most of the rain falling during a three hour window.
