Polk County, Florida - A large sinkhole in Scott Lake has now drained most of the lake.
You get the best view of Scott Lake and the sinkhole in the south end from Sky 10. The view from a helicopter shows the sinkhole has opened up substantially in the past couple of days, but geologists think it may have plugged itself for now.

Interesting story, bad for the fish, bad for the homeowners, good for the birds apparently.
How though, do you think it might be related to the Austrailian Vortex?
It seems to me that the lake just drained into a limestone cavern complex..

There was also that lake that disappeared practically overnight in Russia as well not too long ago. Those homeowners must really be upset to have lakeside homes with no lake.
