BALTIMORE (AP) — A Baltimore public works official says two apartments were evacuated after heavy rains reopened a sink hole.

Department of Public Works spokesman Kurt Kocher says the sink hole covers most of the street in the 2300 block of East Monument St. Two apartments above businesses on the north side of the street have been evacuated along with the businesses because the hole has expanded under the sidewalk on that side of the street.

The spokesman says heavy rains over the weekend reopened the site where repairs previously had been made to a sinkhole that formed around a 120-year-old brick storm drain.
