Baltimore Landslide

After heavy rains all week, an entire side of a street in Baltimore collapsed in spectacular fashion, destroying several cars in the process, though injuring no one. (collapse occurs at the 1:10 mark). The retaining wall which collapsed had been a problem for the community for years, and Baltimore's collapsing infrastructure has been a recurring problem in the city, which only threatens to get worse. This is a larger problem for America as a whole, with the Society of Civil Engineers giving the country a D+ for its current overall infrastructure quality.
