Storm impacts in Howard County

Over 17,000 Howard County residents have lost power.  Link to the power outage map A power outage at the sewer treatment plant near Route 32 and 1 has been causing sewage to be dumped into the Patuxent River below Route 32.  Main Street in Ellicott City is open with some merchants without power. Water is receding and things seem to be getting back to normal.  Halloween seems to ready to happen tomorrow.  Trash and recycling schedules this week slide one day from normal pickups. Check with HoCo Schools website Wednesday morning after 5 am to see if your school is open.
