Security camera captures National Corvette Museum sinkhole as it forms [UPDATE]
New Videos Also Survey Destruction With R/C Helicopter
In the dimly lit video below, we see the floor buckle slightly under a row of Corvettes, chiefly under orange and blue examples, with some dust kicking up as a result. The floor appears to hold for a few moments before giving way, swallowing up a pair of cars and revealing the 40-foot sinkhole. Interestingly, subsequently released images of the sinkhole show a wider area of flooring having collapsed than what's on view in this official video, so it appears to end prematurely. Either way, take a look at the literal fallout in our video below, and we'll keep you informed as this story continues to develop.
UPDATE: The National Corvette Museum has just released a few more videos, some taken from a remote-control helicopter, showing the cars that crashed into the sinkhole. Check them out, along with the earlier security cam footage, below.
UPDATE: We've also been in contact with a spokesperson for the NCM, and have learned that all of the cars in the Skydome that were not swallowed by the sinkhole have been evacuated, with two exceptions. Authorities are presently trying to figure out how to safely extract them. We have new pictures of the damage and the remaining cars in our gallery below.
