A long sinkhole, measuring up to the length of a block, opened up in a residential neighborhood in Baltimore after a heavy downpour on Wednesday, and devoured cars, forcing the evacuation of many houses and their residents.
It was reported that the sinkhole opened next to railroad tracks in the first block of 26th Street in northeast Baltimore, Maryland. It has not yet been ascertained if this has affected the large number of Nigerians living there. A photo uploaded to the Twitter account of the Mayor’s Office of Emergency Management showed several cars swallowed in the pit.
The mayor, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said there were no injuries or fatalities.
