Flash Flooding Leaves Its Mark On Frederick, Maryland

 Thursday, May 17, 2018


The YMCA of Frederick County was among several buildings in and around Frederick, Maryland, that were damaged by severe weather and flash flooding that hit the area Tuesday night. “It is significant damage,” said the facility’s CEO Chris Colville. “We got about half a dozen pumps pumping water out of the pool area and the basement.” According to Colville, the building had 8 to 10 feet of water in its basement. It isn’t the first time the YMCA has dealt with this kind of thing. In 2015, the building sustained more than $1 million in damage from a severe storm.
