"Today at approximately 2:11pm in the afternoon, Upala was rattled by a 5.3 magnitude earthquake that shook products off store shelves and rattled off home furnishings. No immediate damages were reported however later in the afternoon something strange was discovered as a result. "

The residents sat and watched as this river disappeared into the earth.

"Not only will this affect humans but also the livestock raised in the area. "

Interesting one.

It's quite possible that it's been diverted by a landslide, or into a sink hole.

One worry would be if a landslide has simply created a temporary dam upstream - one which might then collapse releasing a flood. Hopefully this possibility will be investigated asap.

Wow that's really strange! The world works in mysterious ways. I wonder where all the water ended up! Hopefully an investigation follows.

I'm sure after the river fills up the fissure after a few floods the river may return.

This reminds me of a similar occurence in Slovenia somewhere last year.

There was a thread on here about it also:
I don't know whether or not the river eventually reappeared.
