[quote:Anonymous Coward 1108510:MV8xMjAwNTUxXzE5NTAxODUyXzk2QTlEQkJB] I agree it doesn't explain why the river was so dry the next day, not even showing any damp patches. I've noticed that people are often quick to find an explanation, as if finding any explanation is more important than accounting for all the facts. [quote:Anonymous Coward 812156] :rofl: this could be very easily explained Eastern Europe is speckled with old closed coal mines, that people living in the area do not know about or the generations that knew died off due to the flooding there could have been some dirt shift opening an unfilled (old coal mines should be filled with sand) coal mine ultimately causing the river water to drain into the mine ok for old mines in the area you may find this river :peace: This doesn't explain why all the river bed is dry, as the OP observed up the page a bit. I am really puzzled by that. It seems impossible that it could have become bone dry that quickly, plus hardly any small pools in low areas. I think there are still some aspects of this that are a mystery. [/quote] [/quote]
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."
