Giant Water-Draining Vortex Opens Up In Lake


A huge water-sucking vortex has opened up on Lake Texoma, which is located along the border of Texas and Oklahoma.

Though it looks fierce and dangerous, the authorities have expressed that there's little cause for concern.

The hole developed as a result of controlled draining methods, initiated due to the water level being too high after heavy rains.

The development of the twister was likened to what happens when a bathtub is emptied. These holes can get large enough to swallow a full-size boat.

It's been noted that buoys have been set up around the aquatic twister to keep people out of harm's way.
