Watch a Sinkhole Swallow the National Corvette Museum


Corvette historyMother Nature can be a cruel mistress. Hurricanes, floods, arctic snows, we have seen it all over the past few months. Many peoples pride and joys have become collateral damage to these events not only leaving them car-less, but also missing something with sentimental value. A number of cars of high monetary and historic value have been lost at the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky, not through theft, but via the elements. Like something out of a science fiction film, a sinkhole opened up right beneath part of the museum disposing of several cars. This shocking CCTV footage shows the moment this cavern made itself known. For those who aren’t geologists, KY has large deposits of limestone and over time this is eroded away by acidic rain leaving large caves underground. When enough limestone has been dissolved by the rain, and if you are unlucky enough to have something built on top of the now empty space, the weight can get too much and the result is the devastation you see before you. Luckily this happened at night whilst there were no visitors in the museum. The full extent of the damage is not yet known. Watch a Sinkhole Swallow the National Corvette Museum.
