Five families flooded out of townhouses in Columbia

December 27, 2009

Flooding from heavy rains and melting snow forced five families out of their townhouses in the Oakland Mills section of Columbia early Saturday, according to Howard County police. A team of volunteers from the Red Cross of Central Maryland provided 15 adults and children with food, clothing and an overnight stay at a hotel, according to a Linnea Anderson, public relations director for the Red Cross. The homes, in the 9400 block of Indian Camp Road, were without heat, Anderson said. Up to three other homes appeared to have been affected, but their residents were not at home at the time of the flooding.
