Cars Slide into Block-Long Hole in Baltimore
Officials say a block-long hole opened up when a street collapsed in a residential neighborhood in northeast Baltimore, sucking in several cars and forcing the evacuation of several houses.
The fire department tweeted on its official Twitter account that the street collapsed Wednesday afternoon in the first block of 26th Street. The sinkhole opened next to railroad tracks used by CSX.
The block of rowhouses was being evacuated and a building inspector has been called. The fire department said no injuries had been reported.
CSX has suspended rail traffic, according to a fire department tweet. Transportation officials were conducting an analysis of the street.
Rain has drenched central Maryland for more than 24 hours.
