Here is the the second installment on the series Amazing Holes

2. Glory Hole - Monticello Dam, California

A glory hole is used when a dam is at full capacity and water needs to be drained from the reservoir. Now you may ask "where does the drain spill to?". I don't know!



This is the 'Glory Hole' at Monticello dam, and it's the largest in the world of this type of spillway, its size enabling it to consume 14,400 cubic feet of water every second.

  3. Sabi ng asawa ko kasi daw Florida used to be a giant swamp na tinabunan lang. Yung dating lugar namin...yung kapitbahay namin may sink hole. Tinabunan nya ng concrete...para daw walang katapusan. Kakatakot talaga.
