Residents displaced when their hillside street collapsed in April will finally return home later this week, according to a Baltimore Sun report.

One at a time, residents of 26th Street between Charles and St. Paul streets will be working with Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. to get their lines reconnected, the paper reported.

Social media lit up in late April with videos and pictures of parked cars vanishing over a cliff and onto train tracks below. Check out this YouTube video of an SUV tipping over and then vanishing from view down into the chasm below.

"It's been a hardship for everybody — for some more than others," State Del. Maggie McIntosh told the Sun. "The sooner they can get back into their homes, the better."

The estimated cost of the damage is $18.6 million, according to CBS affiliate WJZ. What isn't know is how much of that will be paid by railway owners CSX.
