BALTIMORE (AP) - Rain caused a hillside to give way a cemetery in Baltimore, but no graves were damaged.

Western Cemetery caretaker John Brazee says it sounded like thunder when the hillside collapsed.

The mudslide happened in an area being used to store tombstones. No bodies were buried there, and while some headstones were toppled, they were no longer being used because the bodies had been moved.

The cemetery is working to secure what remains of the hill.
