Ellicott City clock post found over a month after flash flooding

Posted at 10:52 AM, Jul 10, 2018

The post for the popular Ellicott City clock has been recovered well over a month after flash floods washed it away. 

Flash flooding on May 27 caused the streets of Old Ellicott City to partially wash away, taking the clock with it. 

In June, the frame and part of the face of the iconic clock were found in the Patapsco River and residents Geoff and Mark Haver were credited with finding and recovering the pieces.

The clock had been installed to replace the clock that had been damaged in the 2016 flood. Now the clock is closer to becoming complete with the recent finding of the post.
