Two people were swept away to their deaths and more than 100 others had to be rescued after heavy rains caused severe damage in Maryland, USA over the weekend.

Almost 6 inches of rain fell in Ellicott City from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., the equivalent of a full month's normal rainfall, foreign media reports.

The Patapsco River, which runs through the area, rose more than 13 feet Saturday night, according to the National Weather Service.

Natives called it "a terrible, terrible, horrific incident," adding: "It looks like a war zone."

The bodies were recovered after they were killed in separate incidents when they were carried off by the rushing water, reportedly.
