Baltimore street collapses after heavy rain

BALTIMORE, Maryland (WBAL) – After two days of rain, a block-long portion of Baltimore, Maryland’s 26th Street collapsed Wednesday, swallowing several cars.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was at the scene to survey the damage.

“We had a street collapse. We’re very blessed there are no fatalities,” Rawlings-Blake said. “We’re extremely blessed that we’re talking about property damage and damage to the street and not any loss of life.”

No injuries have been reported.

Along with emergency departments and first responders who were at the scene, Rawlings-Blake said engineers were checking the structural stability of the homes in the area. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
