A sinkhole developed underneath a house in Bulan (Perry County), Kentucky.  The sinkhole appeared on June 15, 2009.  The sinkhole eroded the ground below the house, and almost caused the immediate collapse of the home.  The home is located in the Dwayne Mountain, along road RT 476 and Hudson Drive.  The sinkhole occurred during the 2009 floods in Kentucky.
