People attended a tree dedication ceremony in Howard County on Saturday to honor a man who died trying to rescue someone from the flood waters that ravaged Ellicott City in 2018. Eddison Hermond died while trying to help rescue a woman and her cat behind La Palapa Grill & Cantina while churning, brown waters ripped through Ellicott City’s flood-prone downtown. “Eddison was taken too soon by his courageous and unselfish acts during the Ellicott City flood,” Blossoms of Hope board chair Joe Barbera said.
