Maryland Governor Larry Hogan wants a declaration of presidential disaster after a violent storm and floods in Baltimore last month, destroying Ellicott City.
The governor announced a request on Monday in a news bulletin, which also said he was requesting a disaster manifest for former Frederick and Washington figures.
These western Maryland counties were flooded in mid-May.
The latest request includes Baltimore County, Baltimore City and Howard County.
The storm hit May 27, causing particularly devastating floods in Ellicott City and turning the main street into a violent raft.
A disaster declaration will open federal aid for recovery efforts.
