Dhideer dhideernu marayuthaam! Buildings disappear! Ghost town discovered on Google MapsHome > News Shots > Fun Facts news
Google Maps is a handy tool which helps us to navigate while we travel. Half of us would be lost if we didn't have Google Maps. However, an uncanny appearance was discovered in Google Maps.
By an eagle-eyed viewer in Canada, something strange was discovered. The user shared the pictures on reddit. The scene is on a long road in Quebec, Canada.
In the town of Lac-Megantic, there was a road which had a few cars on road buildings on the roadside. However, all of a sudden, the landscape flattens with no cars or buildings. Buildings appear and then a metre later they disappear.
The user revealed the truth after doing a little research on it. “The downtown area of Lac-Magentic, Quebec was levelled by a massive explosion in July 2013 when a runaway oil train derailed. The downtown area has not been rebuilt and is now just fields and parking lots. But as you navigate up and down Rue Frontenac in Street View, the original buildings will suddenly appear and disappear.” This is just a glitch in Google system.
