The 'Disappeared Lake' of Russia Found 100m Underground
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.

At the time of disappearance, some old woman at the village suspected that Americans were somehow behind this (sinister and bizarre) incident.
Can anyone put this complex scientific mumbo-jumbo into plain English? ;)
Great Rovian Plot
"Can anyone put this complex scientific mumbo-jumbo into plain English?"
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!
It's Bush's fault!
Very interesting -- talk about a bad day at work!
...Attack of the Mole People, Alert?
You beat me by 5 min....
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.
Some dude was fishing and caught his line on the plug... No big deal...
". . .some old woman at the village suspected that Americans were somehow behind this (sinister and bizarre) incident."
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.
That is an interesting angle for this woman's America-bashing.
Is there going to be more testing, or are we tooling up to go operational?
DAMN KARL ROVE LOL!
I had video of it, and an interview with the first guy to see the water coming into the mine. It's amazing everyone survived it!
Well, it is obvious she's trying to throw the suspicion away from herself. Yes, it must be her.
when i first read that quote in the original story... well i figured she was joking. the americans were probably blamed for everything during the time she lived under communism, so i thought it was a rather wry and funny comment.
but maybe theats just me.
From "a Finnish Newspaper":
"A geological group who drilled a hole about 14.4 kilometers deep in the crust of the earth are saying that they heard human screams. Screams have been heard from the condemned souls from earth's deepest hole. Terrified scientists are afraid they have let loose the evil powers of hell up to the earth's surface.
'The information we are gathering is so surprising, that we are sincerely afraid of what we might find down there,' stated Dr Azzacov, the manager of the project in remote Siberia."
"The second surprise was the high temperature they discovered in the earth's center. 'The calculations indicate the given temperature was about 1,100 degrees Celsius, or over 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit,' Azzacov pointed out. 'This is far more then we expected. It seems almost like an inferno of fire is brutally going on in the center of the earth.'
'The last discovery was nevertheless the most shocking to our ears, so much so that the scientists are afraid to continue the project. We tried to listen to the earth's movements at certain intervals with supersensitive microphones, which were let down through the hole. What we heard turned those logically thinking scientists into a trembling ruins. It was a sometimes a weak, but high pitched sound which we thought to be coming from our own equipment,' explained Dr Azzacov.
'But after some adjustments we comprehended that indeed the sound came from the earth's interior. We could hardly believe our own ears. We heard a human voice, screaming in pain. Even though one voice was discernible, we could hear thousands, perhaps millions, in the background, of suffering souls screaming. After this ghastly discovery, about half of the scientists quit because of fear. Hopefully, that which is down there will stay there,' Dr Azzacov added."
"What really unnerved the Soviets, apart from the voice recordings, was the appearance that same night of a fountainhead of luminous gas shooting up from the drill site, and out of the midst of this incandescent cloud pillar a brilliant being with bat wings revealed itself with the words (in Russian): 'I have conquered,' emblazoned against the dark Siberian sky.
'The incident was absolutely unreal; the Soviets cried out in terror,' says Mr Nummedal. Later that night, he saw ambulance crews circulating in the community. A driver he knew told him that they had been told to sedate everybody with a medication known to erase short term memory. The Soviets use this drug in the treatment of shock victims."
It's a true story...I read it in World Net Daily or World Weekly News (I can never keep them straight! ;-)! Oh, wait...the World Weekly News story was set in Alaska...
OMGOSH, when I looked up info on this story, I found that some people ACTUALLY BELIEVE IT! LMHO! Wish I could find a graphic of the full cover of the WWW...I used to have it on my office door!
http://amightywind.com/hell/aboutsounds.htm Hear the screams at that link!
LOL! Also means "watch where you're walking and don't assume every dip in the soil is a gopher hole."
Yah! Wasser ist inna sinka hole!
This story first appeared in Biblical Archaeology Review, an otherwise respected journal.
Local residents were shocked to find out that their lake had literally vanished from the area. [...]
One of the men assumed that the USA had been involved in such an amazing natural phenomenon: "I think that America got us here," a man said.
It didn't first appear there...that is listed as a "Postscript" at http://web.archive.org/web/20041105021255/http://ship-of-fools.com/Myths/03Myth.html:
There are a couple of postscripts to this incident. One is that the respected magazine, 'Biblical Archaeology Review', printed a story about the Drilling to Hell story, thinking it was so outrageous that readers would get a kick out of it. Many of the readers took the article seriously, however, and either started passing it around as substantiation of the story, or wrote to the magazine to complain that it shouldn't have given it respectability.
Yeah, I was a little surprised to see such an article appear in the rag, which I subscribed to at the time. There was no disclaimer that I noticed.
Why do you no longer subscribe?
The lake leaked, how interesting.
...and there goes a thousand Korans with one huge *flush.*
That article. It was over a decade until the explanation made its way to my desk. Silly reason, I suppose, but archaeology is only a peripheral interest anyway.

It's like Oklahoma and Texas.
Texas would slide into the Gulf of Mexico if it weren't for Oklahoma sucking so greatly. );^)
Rove couldn’t find his ass if you gave him a roll of toilet paper.
What a maroon......
