sink holeBALTIMORE (AP) — Officials say a block-long sinkhole opened up 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 a sinkhole opened up 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.

A fire department tweet says CSX has suspended rail traffic.

According to one witness, the site looks like a landslide happened.

Rain has drenched central Maryland for more than 24 hours.
