Here's an updated link with security camera footage of the collapse when it happened, and drone footage down into the hole.

Be sure and click on the "Playlist" box in the lower right corner to see all your options for security and drone footage.

Incredible.

Lots of cars and we only see a few of them in the video?! How deep are the rest? I could see the back of one of them… Sinkholes are nuts.

Re: Sink Hole at Corvette Museum swallows 8 cars

I was surprised that they kept the rest of the museum open during the day, before apparently doing any type of inspection on the rest of the facility.

A sad event, none the less. Fortunately, no people were injured.

I think I'll have my garage floor inspected, where my toys sleep in the winter
