Heavy rains in Baltimore caused a 120-year-old wall on 26th Street in Charles Village to collapse on Wednesday, “dumping street lights, sidewalks and half a dozen cars onto the CSX rail tracks below,” the Baltimore Sun reported.

The Sun also reported Thursday that residents along 26th street “may be displaced for 40 days” as engineers assess the damage.

Drone-photography outfit Elevated Element decided to send its home-manufactured fliers airborne to capture scenes of the wreckage from above.

Cofounder Terry Kilby sent these photos to Technical.ly Baltimore:
