BALTIMORE (WJZ) — It looks like crews working to repair the sinkhole in downtown Baltimore have some more work ahead of them after storms Wednesday backed up the storm drain system.

Engineers are checking the underground storm drain system at Howard and Pratt streets after the severe downpour Wednesday night, the city’s Department of Public Works reported.
