Residents evacuated after wall collapses on South St.
Police evacuated residents on the 800 block of South St. in Philadelphia after a wall between the buildings’ back yards and a lot under construction collapsed on 8th and South St.
Residents living between 800 and 806 South St. were evacuated. Eight people were displaced by the collapse, according to the Red Cross.
Lt. Robert Ritchie said rain washed away temporary shoring, causing a mudslide on a construction site that was already there.
No injuries have been reported.
