Billy tweets us around 9:45 last night:

“Just watched house across from me partially collapse. Woah. #DC @PoPville unit block of Q St NW”

and another reader sends video via email:

“So this happened on the unit block of Q st nw tonight. There’s construction happening on the lot next to this apartment building and clearly something went wrong while digging the basement. They haven’t worked on the building since Monday.”

Watch video of the collapse after the jump.
