Collapsed Baltimore Street to Stay Evacuated

Updated:
Officials say people who live in houses on a Baltimore city block where the street collapsed during a rainstorm may have to be kept out of their homes for up to 40 days.
 
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake spokesman Kevin Harris said Thursday he did not know how many houses or people are affected by the continued evacuation order in Charles Village. He says city officials will meet with residents Friday morning.
 
A sidewalk and retaining wall in Baltimore's Charles Village neighborhood buckled and caved in Wednesday afternoon, swallowing a streetlight and more than half a dozen cars. No one was injured.
 
Freight rail officials say cargo trains will likely begin running again Thursday evening on a section of track that was buried in the collapse.
