BLECKLEY Co., GA (WMAZ) -- A Bleckley County man says a pond on his property disappeared overnight because of a sinkhole.

Oliver Hodge says he and his wife heard the ground giving way on his farm just a few yards from his home.

Hodge says it sounded like thunder or a freight train. Hodge says the pond was nearly drained in about 30 minutes.

He's called the federal Environmental Protection Agency but they told him there's nothing they can do to help.
