    A hole opened up in the ground in southern Kentucky Wednesday, swallowing up eight Corvettes.

    It happened at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green.

    The museum's executive director says the sinkhole appeared before dawn under the skydome section of the site. The hole is about 12 metres wide and about nine metres deep.
