Lake disappears overnight drained by a deep sinkhole in Russia

A 200 meters in diameter and 3 meters in depth forest lake – Lake Peschёra – disappeared overnight underground as a deep sinkhole drained the entire reservoir with all the fish in it.

The incident is worrying residents who are scared that a nearby lake – Lake Lyubimov -, which feeds water to 300 houses and a local farm with more than 1000 head of cattle, also suddenly vanishes. That would be a tragedy!

Is this the draining season? Again, and again lakes and rivers are disappearing around the world, drained by large holes or cracks in the ground.

After Nigeria, where a part of a river mysteriously vanished and Mexico, where the Atoyac River was swallowed by a large crack, it is now a lake in the Perm region of Russia that disappeared overnight.

No more water, no more fish, and just a small but deep sinkhole in the middle of the reservoir.

Residents of the village of Ostashata in the Perm region of Russia were baffled as they discovered that their nice fishing lake Peschёra had completely drained out overnight.

Some believe the chiams was created by a M4.1 earthquake that rattled the region of Sverdlovsk a few weeks ago. Others believe, this cavity is linked to fracking for oil and gas in the region. A third hypothesis is that the sink hole is a new entrance to a large cave in the area – Zuyatskaya cave.

A scientist adds that lake disappearances and re-appearances are ‘normal’ in a karst region. Heavy rainfall may have washed out the bottom of the lake, opening underground cavities in which the water drained.

People in the village get their water from lake Lyubimov. And if this lake also disappears, more than 300 residents would have to be relocated. That would become tragic!
