    Default sinkhole swallows 8 cars at national corvette museum

    heres some videos of it

    http://blog.powerblocktv.com/sinkhol...rvette-museum/

    It's a sad morning for the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. A sinkhole opened under the dome this morning and swallowed eight cars on display. "As it started happening, it triggered an alarm, so the security company called an employee," Museum Executive Director Wendell Strode said.
    The alarm, which was triggered at 5:38 a.m., also resulted in a call to the fire department.
    "It's about 20 feet deep. As best as I can see it is about as big as the pedestal area where we had the cars displayed," Strode said.
    The dome is part of the original museum for which construction began in 1992 and was complete in 1994.
    Strode said nothing can be done about the cars until a structural engineer arrives and evaluates the situation.
    "We also have called some karst people from Western Kentucky University to come out and see what is going on. This is the first incidence of a sinkhole on the property", he said.
    Currently, plans are for the museum to be open, but the dome room will be closed.

    Its a shame that we lost so much history and all the damage to some of the most famous sports cars built.
