[quote:Anonymous Coward 883744:MV8xMjAwNTUxXzE5NDk2OTIzX0Y0QjY5RUIx] This is a load of feldercarb... Look at the banks of this supposed 'river'... there really aren't any. No scoured embankments before any vegetation. Instead the 'river bed' of small pebbles just ENDS right where the treeline starts. It simply doesn't LOOK right to have recently been a flowing river. It looks like a 'dry wash' area in which water might drain under heavy rain or flood conditions, but this is no river in the usual sense of the term. I think the story is a lot of hyped up bunk.

On Tuesday night 2km of the river Iska in Slovenia disappeared and left behind fish on dry ground. The residents are saying that they heard a huge bang in the night. It sounds like they are describing it as a possible earthquake-like sound although there was no tremor. One woman said that it was like a huge detonation, as if something big had crashed onto the ground. People went out of their homes to see what was falling down, only to witness the river being drained.
To make this story even more strange, last week there were devastating floods in Slovenia and this river like all others was flooding land and properties. Could it be that some strange technology is being tested here for flood defence purpose? The official explanation is that due to the karst nature of the terrain the river went underground through this tiny hole (see pictures in link below), but the residents are highly sceptical as they have never witnessed anything like that ever (bearing in mind this river has flooded many times before).
For pictures (language is Slovenian): 24ur.com...
The first part of the official news story (from link above) translates as:
"On Tuesday night the river Iska vanished between the villages of Iska Vas and Strahomer."... (Now here comes the official explanation)... "Slovene Environment Agency statement says that the water is flowing into the underground chamber underneath the water bed. This is the way the river disappears and reappers later down stream.This time this characteristic of the river is stronger because of the damages to the river bed."
