Within the last 3 months or so, newspapers have started reporting increasingly about rivers and lakes that mysteriously and suddenly disappear around the world.

Here a compilation of the most baffling incidents.

Let’s start this compilation with the Atoyac River, which disappeared overnight drained by a giant 30 meters by 20 meters fissure in the riverbed. The large sink hole cut the water supply to more than 10,000 families for a few days.

One month later, in April 2016, two other rivers flowing through the exact same mountainous region of the eastern state of Veracruz, Mexico also began to dry up due to the formation of sinkholes.

Now, closer to us in May 2016, Lake Riesco in Chilean Patagonia has almost dried out within two or three days, transforming this idyllic place into a rock-and-sand landscape. People are still waiting for an official answer to this mystery… Was another sinkhole or a fault line at the origin of the disappearance of this water reservoir?

Mid June 2016, official sources report an unprecedent water crisis in the same region of Chile with large lakes and rivers drying up and thus threatening communities and animals living around.
