Massive Baltimore sinkhole swallows roadway, parked cars

BALTIMORE - Several parked cars tumbled in a massive block-long sinkhole in a residential area of Baltimore Wednesday.

Neighbors call the area Pastel Row, because each house along the street is painted a different color. The homes were built in the 1920s.

That block of rowhouses was evacuated and a building inspector was called in to check the structures.

"Heard a loud bang and the whole building shook," said Diane Shaw, who works in a building near the collapse.

Gretchen LeGrand, executive director of the non-profit Code In The Schools, captured stunning images of the cars from the vantage point of her office across the CSX tracks. 

No injuries have been reported.

Rain has drenched central Maryland for more than 24 hours, according to the Associated Press.
