[quote:Anonymous Coward 1108510:MV8xMjAwNTUxXzE5NTAzMDUzXzQ1QjQ3MjFG] How is this possible when the event only happened just over 2 days ago? And the photos were taken the following day. All the points you make below only increase the mystery of it all - probably not an event of great magnitude? Don't forget this river was flooded! So if the river bed does not show usual signs of being a river, this should be making you question this even more! Don't just look at a picture, read the information provided in this thread as well. You think the national news got it wrong and it wasn't really a river? "Oh dear yes, we didn't realise it was just a tiny stream! How silly we've been calling it a river all this time throughout Slovene history! And oh yeah, didn't this happen over a week ago? Damn, forgot to send the film crew out!" [b]The facts[/b]: the event happened just over two days ago, film crew and photographers went out there soon after this. Was not too much of a trek as Slovenia is not much larger than greater London. And the river has always been a river...the river Iška [quote:Philippines] looks like a wash, not a river... If there was a river there then they were over a week late getting pictures of the remains.... I think you may be right. It could have had a lot of water from the floods and has since disappeared. Looking at the images here: http://www.siol.net/Slovenija/Novice/2010/09/izginila_iska.aspx The "riverbed" does not show the usual characteristics of being a river. The trees do not have a water line. The stoned are bleached and have no signs of any growth on them. The fish are small. Seems to be something probably did happen, but not at a great magnitude [/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."
