St. Peter's members mobilized hot coffee, water and snacks at the George Howard Building where credentialing and escorts were able to take residents and business owners to their properties to gather belongings and assess damage. Operations continued at St. Peter's to mobilize and organize donations.

St. Peter's began to connect with local businesses. The Rev. Jim Perra ran into St. Peter's member Kennette Mitchell in the Home Depot in Ellicott City. Home Depot donated work gloves and contractor bags for the clean up effort.

Mother Anjel walked through the West End to do a preliminary assessment of damage. She was able to walk to Ellicott Mills Drive where the road had completely collapsed. When that sinkhole opened, it swept away the historic courthouse.
