A sinkhole opened up inside the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green Kentucky and swallowed 8 cars/corvettes.
Sinkholes are opening up everywhere it seems. Florida has been having an abundance of them besides other places in the world.
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — A sinkhole formed Wednesday under the National Corvette Museum, swallowing eight cars, according to its executive director.
When emergency personnel got to the museum, they discovered a sinkhole 40 feet wide and 25 to 30 feet deep, Strode said.
List of corvettes it got:
- 1993 ZR-1 Spyder on loan from General Motors
- 2009 ZR1 "Blue Devil" on loan from General Motors
- 1962 Black Corvette
- 1984 PPG Pace Car
- 1992 White 1 Millionth Corvette
- 1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette
- 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette
- 2009 White 1.5 Millionth Corvette
Why are so many sinkholes opening up now? Kentucky is not sand as Florida is but has bedrock.
They do say that sinkholes are common in Kentucky:
Bowling Green is at the edge of a karst region where caves, springs and sinkholes are common. The main entrance to Mammoth Cave National Park is about 30 miles northeast of the city, but that cave system has more than 400 miles that have been explored.Here is some information about karst, in Kentucky I found in PDF form
It appears nothing is immune to a sinkhole opening up.
