The 'Disappeared Lake' of Russia Found 100m Underground

Chung Byong-sun

In a bizarre twist of nature, a lake disappeared overnight in Russia. A lake turned into a mud pit overnight in Nizhni Novogorod, 250km to the east of Moscow. The picture shows the shore of what used to be lake, and its bottom.
(Moscow) The mystery surrounding a lake which disappeared one night in Russia last May has been finally solved. On May 19th, a lake holding one million cubic meter of water disappeared without a trace
in the village of Bolotnikovo in Nizhni Novgorod, 250km to the east of Moscow.

Russia's Ministry of Emergency Management assembled an investigation team made up of geologists and flood experts, which embarked on 'lake-searching' with cutting-edge electronic equipments and geological surveying tools. As a result, on June 16th, the team announced their finding that the lake (note: the whole body of water from the lake) moved down to 100m underground.

Geologist Pavel Ivanov explained, "The lake was located on a geological structure which is like a Swiss-cheese. The body of water was rapidly sucked into a biggest hole." The underground cave was formed 200million years ago, according to the investigators. Flood expert Mikhail Leonenko also commented, "Water was drained into an underground cave through a hole at the bottom of the lake.  The body of water could reemerge."

The lake is 300m away from the village. According to Russia media, some villagers believe that God's curse is at work, since the lake first appeared during the reign of Ivan the Terrible and there used to be an Orthodox church at the location.

Of course it was the US's fault. It must be a side effect of the Tsunami Generators we tested a few months back.

Can anyone put this complex scientific mumbo-jumbo into plain English? ;)

This has happened many times many places where underground caverns and sinkholes meet.

This one had a lake over it.

Well, the best part of it is that as far as it is known there appear to be no people in that cavern the lake flushed down into.

The wrong rock in the rock place at the wrong time moved and all the water drained into the cave. If I had been President, I would have worked with my Russian allies to make the lake feel more secure. We had no plan for after the lake disappeared...

Reminds me of the Lake Peigneur incident, where a salt mine was drilled into and the lake was drained into the mine. I'm sure there are better pages than the ones I linked...just run a search on Lake Peigneur and enjoy!

Karst topography. Limestone formations under the lake gave way.

I remember when that happened; the people in Delcambre thought it was the end of the world because the bayou flowed backwards. I also remember the interview of the guy and his nephew who were fishing on the lake when it went.

Let's not hire the Americans who stole this lake to do ANYTHING. If you can't steal and lake and get it home, then you're just worth it.

I bet she's trying to cover her trail. Around 1470 in some town in Germany [forgot its name; the incident is described in "Malleus Maleficarum"] there was an unusually strong hailstorm which damaged the local crops. Immediately two local old hags were arrested, confessed under interrogation to being witches and to have caused the hailstorm, and were duly given the thermal treatment.
