So There Was a Mudslide in Philly Last Night

Someday a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the streets. Until then, we’ll just have to settle for a torrential downpour that caused a mudslide, which in turn caused a wall to collapse on the 600 block of south 8th Street last night. Which in turn caused the evacuation of four properties.

Officials say rain washed away the temporary shoring behind several buildings at a construction site on the 600 block of South 8th Street. This then led to a mudslide which caused the retainer wall of a building to collapse shortly after 7:30 p.m.

The Red Cross is helping the displaced dozen or so Bella Vistans.  [NBC 10]
