While the rest of the world worries about power outages and storms, the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky reported 8 corvettes sucked into nothingness early this morning. According to the museum; "We received a call at 5:44am from our security company alerting us of our motion detectors going off in our Skydome area of the Museum.  Upon arrival it was 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. The Fire Department has estimated the size of the hole is 40 feet across and 25-30 feet deep."

It's unclear what the value of those timeless vehicles lost in one of the first layers of hell, or what caused the collapse. "According to the Musuem, "A structural engineer is now on-site to assess the existing damage and stability of the surrounding areas.  The Museum is closed to the public for the day to allow us to carefully assess the situation.  We will keep everyone informed as we know more."
