Amid the flooding, the Howard fire department warned people trapped on the city's Main Street to climb to the second floors of buildings as they awaited rescue and said the damage could rival devastating flood that occurred there in 2016. If you are there, stay safe where you are and let us know if you need help. "PLEASE DO NOT be their next recovery they will have to make today".
