"Cars everywhere, sidewalks missing, roads partially gone, utility poles down, cars on top of cars," Howard County Executive Allan Kittleman said of the scene. 

Officials report Ellicott City received more than six inches of rain in a matter of hours. Kittleman said in the aftermath of the storm, the city looked like a "war zone."

"I've seen the flooding in Ellicott City in the past, and it's been bad. It has never been close to being this bad," he said.

Photos from WMAR show vehicles almost completely submerged and water flooding the streets.

As of Sunday, Howard County police had no other missing person reports from the floods.

'Buck moon': July's full moon has an interesting name – and history

June brought us the rare sight of the "strawberry moon" during the summer solstice, and on Tuesday, July brought us ... the "buck moon"?

>> Click here to watch the video from Newsy

July's full moon is nicknamed after the woodland creature because Native Americans used the animal's growth patterns to track the seasons.

According to the "Old Farmer's Almanac," tribes noticed bucks would sprout new antlers around this time of year and named the moon after the trend.

And "buck" isn't the only nickname this full moon has. Some also call it the "thunder moon" or "hay moon" because farmers start to store their hay in preparation for this season's stormy weather.

Stargazers were able to catch a glimpse of the "buck moon" Tuesday starting about 6:56 p.m.

Last day of Country Concert: Best weather yet

The last day of County Concert will be the most comfortable so far.

Since the event kicked off, we have seen hot and humid conditions with a few passing showers and thunderstorms.

Today brings some much appreciated changes.

This afternoon, dew points will be falling. Less humidity and a breeze will make temperatures in the low-80s feel even more comfortable. During the heat of the day, we will see more fair-weather clouds bubble up but dry conditions expected from start to finish. Clouds decrease late for mostly sunny skies as the sunsets just after 9 this evening. Eric Church is schedule to take the stage around 10 PM. Anyone planning to attend may want to have a sweatshirt or light jacket handy as temperatures will be falling quickly into the upper-60s before the concert wraps up.


Toddler forgotten in 154-degree car expected to recover

A toddler is expected to recover after police said his mother accidentally left him in a hot car for 2 1/2 hours in blistering temperatures in Utah over the weekend.

The 1 1/2-year-old boy was found Sunday afternoon in his family's car. He was lethargic and his breathing was shallow. His temperature had reached 105 degrees, according to police.

"This car was 154 degrees inside a few minutes after paramedics had opened the door and were doing their work on the child," Lt. Lex Bell, of the Unified Police Department, told KSTU. "So (it) probably was even higher than that."

The car was parked in the family's driveway with its windows rolled up, The Salt Lake Tribune reported.

The child was flown to Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City, where he was initially listed in critical condition. He has since been upgraded to fair condition, Bell said.

Police told KSTU that the boy's mother went to church on Sunday afternoon and decided to go home after she fell ill. She left her husband and their other children at the church, but forgot that she had brought home their toddler son. She went inside while he was still strapped in his car seat, The Tribune reported.

The child's father discovered him when he returned home from church.

Police did not identify the family and told reporters that officers do not anticipate making any arrests in the case.

"A child should be the first thing that goes into the house," Bell told KUTV. "It gets hot so fast inside of those cars, and this could have been so much more tragic than it is."

Hot weather is expected across Utah this week, according to the National Weather Service. Forecasters said Sunday that temperatures in Salt Lake City reached 90 degrees for the 16th time this month.

“Having a full moon land smack on the solstice is a truly rare event,” said astronomer Bob Berman. “By landing exactly on the solstice, this full moon doesn’t just rise as the sun sets, but is opposite the sun in all other ways, too.”

The last time a full moon fell on the summer solstice was 1948.

Video shows massive sinkhole swallowing van

One man in Ottawa, Ontario, is out of a vehicle after a huge sinkhole opened and took it down with it.

CBC News reported that the sinkhole began forming downtown at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The sinkhole quickly grew on Rideau Street in downtown Ottawa and stretched across its four lanes, filling with water.

A water main break was to blame for the development of the sinkhole, CBC News reported.

Those in nearby buildings were evacuated because of the road collapse and an on-site gas leak.

Authorities reported no injuries, but the owner of the van was not able to go near the sinkhole or retrieve his vehicle.

It was not the first time that the street has collapsed. CBC News reported that a similar incident occurred in 1924, citing Library and Archives Canada.

Video of the van falling into the sinkhole can be seen below:
