There goes the neighborhood! Similiar occurances are happening in New York City as well. There seems to be building collapses reported on the news every week.
Is anyone else hearing related reports from other cities?

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Years of urban decay are taking a serious toll on Philadelphia's once vibrant neighborhoods. Twenty-two buildings have collapsed since Thursday, and the city believes more than 3,100 others could fall down at any moment.

This is really weird. Twenty two buildings in one city collapsed--in four days?
Downright spooky, if you ask me.

And, 3,100 more buildings could fall down "at any moment"? That's spookier yet.
