LAUREL, Md. — Police in Maryland say a person was found dead in a flooded camp where homeless people live in tents.
Up to six inches of rain fell overnight in some areas along the Patuxent River, where the flood gate openings have prompted evacuations.
Laurel city spokesman Pete Piringer says the evacuations were ordered Thursday morning and affect several hundred people in the city’s historic district.
The National Weather Service says the water releases will likely cause higher water levels than the area has seen in many years.
