    Ok, so there's this lake that allegedly disappeared extremely quickly. They showed it on the American television show 60 Minutes a few nights ago, and to me it actually looked like there was still a lake there, but I guess that was a before picture, not after. Is this real? If so, how did it happen?

    I reckon Coca-Cola nicked it.

    Vanishing lakes are something that is more common than one would think.

    We had a thread about a 23 acre lake that vanished in Saint Louis, MO in 2004. It also discusses the Lake Peigneur disaster.

    This link discusses the disappearance of Florida Lakes such as Lake Jackson and Lake Cascade.
