Disaster at the National Corvette Museum places Bowling Green in the national news today.

Around 5:40am today, a sinkhole opened up in the Sky Dome area of the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, setting off an alarm and a call to the Fire Department.  The Sky Dome is one of the original parts of the facility and was completed in 1994.

Of the eight cars damaged by the sinkhole, six were owned by the museum, including the 1992 White 1 Millionth Corvette.  Two of the cars were on loan from General Motors.

Bowling Green city spokeswoman Kim Lancaster says information is still being gathered about exactly what happened, but this appears to be the first incident of its kind on the property.  The museum sits on an area containing many of Kentucky’s longest caves.

The National Corvette Museum is still set to open today, but the Sky Dome area will remain closed to both visitors and employees.
