Trains running again after Md. street collapse

Friday - 5/2/2014, 5:43pm  ET

BALTIMORE (AP) -- Trains are running again on a section of track that was buried in rubble when a Baltimore street collapsed during a storm.

CSX says trains began running in the area Friday morning, two days after a retaining wall slid onto the tracks during heavy rainfall, bringing cars and a sidewalk with it. No one was hurt.

Homes along the street in Baltimore's Charles Village neighborhood were evacuated after the collapse and city officials say residents may be kept from their homes for up to 40 days. Officials say they aren't sure exactly how many homes or residents are affected by the evacuation order.

CSX says it is working with local officials to determine the cause of the slide.
