Video shows ever-worsening, destructive landslide in Baltimore
Several parked, unoccupied vehicles got stuck or heavily damaged in a Baltimore landslide earlier this week, and a YouTube video published Thursday shows the scene slowly building to a crescendo.
The landslide was initially called a sinkhole by many, but a National Geographic article points out that a sinkhole is when the ground caves in to create a void in a piece of land, as was the case when several classic Corvettes took a plunge in a Kentucky museum in February.
A landslide, however, occurs on a hillside, on a slope, on the face of a cliff or generally anywhere where there's a steep angle, which is what happened in Baltimore.
The YouTube video shows the landslide happening in real time, and you see it build up to its destructive final act -- to a chorus of screams -- before the footage cuts off. It literally ends with a boom.
Stinks for the owner of the vehicles, but it made for quite an amazing sight to see.
