A street collapsed in Baltimore on Wednesday, swallowing cars and trees. The scary scene and the roar and some woman screaming

are caught on video, which has now gone viral.

Families in the citys Charles Village neighborhood have been evacuated and could be out of their homes for the next month after a retaining wall buckled and sent part of 26th Street crashing down 75 feet onto railroad tracks below.

City officials are trying to figure out the cause.

The Weather Channel

points out that the city was soggy. More than 3 inches of rainfall were recorded at Baltimore-Washington International on Wednesday, the fourth-wettest April day on record for the city.

No one was injured in the landslide, which is quite remarkable given that people were standing close enough to record great video of the fall.

One video, posted to YouTube on Thursday, grabbed more than 1 million hits in one day. Its up to nearly 2.3 million hits today.

If you watch it, turn the volume


down if you dont want to have your eardrums blown out by the woman screaming at the end.
