BALTIMORE (WMAR) — This Saturday ABC will air an episode of a new television series that will feature the Ellicott City community and their journey through two devastating floods in as many years.

It's called Hearts of Heroes, an educational docu-series that captures an in depth look at the heroic efforts of first responders in the aftermath of some the nation's most destructive natural disasters.

Saturday's episode will also focus on local Main Street business owners Joan Eve Shea-Cohen, Gary Weltner, and Mark Hemmis, who were affected by the latest flood in 2018, which resulted in one death and several homes and businesses being destroyed.

You can watch Hearts of Heroes on Saturday at 10 a.m. on WMAR Channel 2.
