Engineers and geologists are trying to figure out just exactly what happened Tuesday morning, as a sinkhole formed under the Sky Dome area of the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, swallowing up eight of the classic cars in the process. Officials with the National Corvette Museum say the hole opened up at about 5:40am setting off an alarm and a call to the fire department. The sinkhole is estimated to be about 20 to 30 feet deep and 40 feet across. The News Edge spoke with Melissa Warren, with WBKO TV, who says the engineers on site are trying to determine the stability of that part of the museum, and how it could affect the facility's future.
Warren added that officials noted there is a possibility the hole could expand in size as time goes by.
The Sky Dome area is an original part of the Museum, which was completed in 1994. No onewas injured as a result of the incident.
