Sinkhole1

A sinkhole opened in the floor under the Skydome on February 12th at about 5:44 am swallowing 8 Corvettes that were on display. At that time a motion detector going off in the Skydome area of the Museum alerted officials that something was going on. It was later discovered that a sinkhole had collapsed within the Museum. No one was in or around the Museum at the time. The Bowling Green Fire Department arrived on the scene and secured the area. Engineers are now examining the area to determine the extent of the sinkhole and repairs that can be made. The pictures with the small "toy like" Vettes reveal the size of the hole. (Which was about 40 feet in diameter.)
