Pratt, Howard Streets Closed in Downtown Baltimore As Crews Assess Safety


Pratt Street and Howard Street in Downtown Baltimore have been closed as safety crews assess the condition of the roads and the areas underneath them.

Yesterday (July 8), a water main broke, flooding the Inner Harbor and nearby areas. The flood also caused a train to derail in the Howard Street Tunnel according to The Baltimore Sun.

Now, workers are trying to determine if any dangerous voids opened up underground as a result of yesterday's flooding. They are apparently using a "penetrating radar" according to the above tweet to determine if any at all repair work will be needed and to keep the two roads safe for commuters.

This story will be updated as more information comes in.
