BALTIMORE, May 1 (UPI) -- A block-long sinkhole that opened up in a residential neighborhood in Baltimore, Md. on Wednesday prompted the evacuation of several houses in the area.

The concavity is located around 26th Street & N Charles Street, the city mayor's Twitter account shared a message Wednesday evening asking residents to avoid the area.

Because the sinkhole opened next to railroad tracks used by CSX, officials have suspended railroad traffic in the area.

A building inspector was called to the scene as residents were being asked to evacuate. No injuries or casuals have stemmed from the incident.
