Several cars were devoured by the earth below Wednesday afternoon after a block-long landslide in a residential neighborhood in northeastern Baltimore, The Associated Press reported.
"It looks like downtown Baltimore reported nearly 4.5 inches of rain since through 5 p.m. EDT," AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist Dave Dombek said. "The heaviest rain in Baltimore should be (through) the first part of tonight. But there can be one more flare-up late tonight."
The Baltimore Fire Department tweeted that it impacted CSX railroad tracks, stopping traffic along with the evacuation of several houses along 26th Street.
