Lake in Chile goes ‘missing’

According to Reuters news, a lake in Chile that was as big as about 10 soccer pitches has mysteriously ‘gone missing’. The lake was apparently located in the Magallanes region, and was supplied with water from melting glaciers. Some people speculate that an earth tremor opened a crack in the ground, which ‘swallowed’ the lake, (supporting this is evidence of thousands of minor tremors this year in Chile). Or, like a comment on this blog entry suggests, someone could have appeared below the lake and ‘pulled the plug’.

Either way, a missing lake should definitely be cause for concern about today’s environment.
