Ellicott City, Maryland
2016 Flash Flood
After a disastrous flash flood destroyed much of the historic mill town of Ellicott City, Maryland in July of 2016, LeadersLink partnered Howard County Councilman Jon Weinstein with El Paso County Colorado Commissioner Sallie Clark. Clark had helped oversee the recovery of Manitou Springs, Colorado following a similar flash flood in 2013 that killed one and inundated dozens of homes and businesses, causing millions of dollars in damages. In conference calls, Clark shared with Weinstein both recovery and mitigation information. She also made a visit to Ellicott City to meet one-on-one with the councilman and attend a community recovery meeting.
