Heavy rains have soaked several states throughout the last 48 hours, causing massive floods in places like Florida and Alabama and leading to at least 37 deaths.

But this Baltimore street proved the rain-soaked ground can be deadly dangerous even without several feet of standing floodwater.

A few cars were left dangling on the edge of the concrete after the massive slide occurred.

The downpour Wednesday added to the water levels of streams and rivers already swollen from a tornado-generating system that killed and injured hundreds in the U.S. South over a period of three days. Alabama officials on Thursday estimated damage in the state at close to $6.7 million, according to Reuters.

Several people caught moments of the damage happening, like this car slipping into the hole.

But this is the video that’s really nuts. This Baltimore street makes an incredible sound as it disappears.
