A 40-foot sinkhole developed inside the National Corvette Museum overnight in Bowling Green, KY, swallowing up eight vehicles, including two Corvette models on loan from General Motors. No one was in the museum at the time of the incident, which happened early this morning. According to the NCM, motion sensors were set off at 5:44 AM, leading museum authorities to discover a 25 to 30-foot deep chasm, that Executive Director Wendell Strode called "pretty significant."

A structural engineer is on site, assessing what is to be done next. Probably a geo-technical engineer will be arriving soon, to determine the cause. The Museum is not in a low-lying area. The question of what caused the ground to give way underneath is paramount.

What a huge loss, the 1,000,000th Corvette and the 1,500,000th Corvette, plus the other seven very significant cars.

Just heard from a friend who works for the Museum, that the hope is to re-open the rest of the Museum tomorrow, minus of course the "Sky Dome" area where the sinkhole is; of course that is dependent on the engineers' findings later today.
