"I married the girl of my dreams. We are just happy everyone is safe, still trying to get everyone safe... it was a chaotic day," Craig Symbor said.
Ellicott City was just getting back to normal with more businesses open than before the 2016 flood.
"It was incredible, so many of the businesses did come back and some didn't. Now with this happening so close again, we're going to have to watch that all over again," neighbor Ken Kessler said.
This boutique finally reopened again, after closing down in 2016.
"It's hard to see every time it rains here, the community's heart stops and I just don't know what we are going to do, but I can tell you that it is the strongest community I've ever been a part of and we are gonna rebuild this place the best we can," neighbor Philemon Kendzierski said.
As the water recedes, a determination has set in yet again, to show the world what Ellicott City strong means.
"It takes a lot of work to come back after something like this but I think they will. The community will pull together and we will do it again," Kessler said.
