Corvette Museum Looks Toward Rebuilding and Recovery after Devastating Sinkhole - Erika Kurre

BOWLING GREEN, KY - Right now, National Corvette Museum workers are looking toward repairs and recovery.

The eight Corvettes damaged and swallowed in the Bowling Green Kentucky sinkhole Wednesday morning are part of an estimated millions of dollars in damage to the museum.

It's well-known that sinkholes and caves are a typical part of southern Kentucky.
   
But more than a decade after the museum was built, weather could be what broke the ground beneath it, making a 40-feet wide hole as deep as 30 feet.

Video from a remote-controlled drone inside flew down beneath the floor that gave way.

The decades-old sports cars look like miniature models, resting where they landed just before 6-am.

Museum workers unofficially estimate millions of dollars in damage to the cars and skydome section of the facility.

In security video you can see patches of the floor beginning to drop beneath the cars before finally giving way.

The jolt set off an alarm and a call to the fire department.

It also reportedly knocked out power to the museum.

Fortunately, no one was injured.

Caves and hollow ground aren't unusual in the region.

The museum is just a short distance from Mammoth Cave National Park.

WKU Geology Professor Jason Polk says what caused this ground to suddenly give way could be due to the recent rain and generally wet winter.

Among the cars that fell, the millionth Corvette ever made and the one and a half millionth Corvette made.
   
More than 20-other cars inside the dome were not damaged and have since been carefully removed.

The museum's marketing and communication's manager says some of the cars damaged by the sinkhole may be used in a future "survivors" exhibit.

Rebuilding is the next focus for the museum.
   
It's already been preparing for its 20th anniversary celebration this summer with thousands already planning to attend.
