Officials say the sinkhole that opened up at the Corvette Museum early Wednesday morning measured 25-30 feet deep and 40 feet wide. Eight cars were affected by the sinkhole, several others that were in the domed area of the museum remain in place.  Reversing an earlier decision, the museum has announced that it is closed at the moment.
