Charles Village landslide victims need help [Letter]

May 06, 2014

I along with thousands of others wish to reach out to the residents who homes and belongings were devastated as a result of the horrible landslide along 26th Street in Charles Village ("Deluge causes landslide in Charles Village, floods roadways across state," May 1).

The reports indicate that the occupants in this area had been complaining for years over the weakening of this retaining wall.

Unfortunately, to prove the residents' point it finally took a loud blast from Mother Nature that included more than seven inches of rain over a two-day period that literally destroyed the foundation of the whole area.

How happy and pleased these suffering occupants would be if another blast of help from city officials and their fellow citizens man were forthcoming to aid them in fulfilling their wishes and plans for the future.

Quinton D. Thompson, Towson
