There's a hole in the bottom of the river
It seems a sinkhole is in danger of swallowing up the famous Le Tort Spring Run in Pennsylvania. Area business and angling groups are working together to try to find and plug the leak.
"Signs of the problem can be seen along the stream bank, where water appears to flow straight into the bank or down into a 6-inch-wide hole in the streambed. At two points nearby, the ground has sunk in. At the bottom of both pits, water can be seen trickling away from the stream. “The fact that it all fell in there means the water is being drawn in from the creek,” said Rocky Stump, a CVTU volunteer who lives on nearby Bonnybrook Road."
