City workers want to know what's causing two homes in Baltimore's upper Fells Point neighborhood to sink.
The homes were being condemned after city inspectors determined the structures were sinking and in danger of collapsing because of an unknown water source. Engineers say that constant flow of water is compromising the foundations of those homes.
Late this week, public works officials were still investigating the South Madeira Street location, so residents were forced to celebrate Thanksgiving elsewhere.
One resident says her home has sunk two to three inches so far. There are also huge cracks in the walls of her basement and bedroom. The rapidly deteriorating situation only gave her a few hours to move out with a few possessions.
Many of the residents in the neighborhood believe a recent repaving project is the cause.
