Our hearts are going out to our Corvette family today as the folks at the National Corvette Museum assess the damage from this morning’s sinkhole incident inside the Skydome. While we are saddened by the news that several iconic Corvettes were ‘swallowed’ and the Museum has a long road of repair ahead, we are truly grateful that no one was injured. The Bowling Green community is very fortunate as this could have been devastating.
According to the NCM, “We received a call at 5:44am from our security company alerting us of our motion detectors going off in our Skydome area of the Museum. Upon arrival it was discovered that a sinkhole had collapsed within the Museum. No one was in or around the Museum at the time. The Bowling Green Fire Department arrived on the scene and secured the area. The Fire Department has estimated the size of the hole is 40 feet across and 25-30 feet deep.”
The NCM will reopen tomorrow, February 13, for visitors and enthusiasts while the Skydome will remain closed. The 115,000 sq. ft. showcase to America’s sports car has plenty of remaining displays and exhibits to make the visit more than worthwhile!
