Three days after severe storms and tornadoes killed at least 31 people in the United States South and Mid-West, the region has been hit by severe flash flooding.

The heavy rains have caused an enormous sinkhole to open up at 26th Street and North Charles Street, Baltimore, Maryland at around 4 p.m. on Wednesday near the train tracks used by CSX rail traffic.

Streetlights, cars and tress were swallowed into the sinkhole, but fire department officials don’t believe anyone was injured in the incident.  

The landslide swept across a set of train tracks and resulted in the suspension of some CSX rail traffic.

People living on the block and surrounding area have been evacuated.
