A sinkhole opened up in front of President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, according to multiple news reports.

The 4-foot by 4-foot hole is near a new water main on Southern Boulevard just west of the southern entrance of Mar-a-Lago, the Palm Beach Daily News reported. Utility workers secured the area and would likely excavate the site on Monday to find the issue. Traffic was moving slowly as of Monday morning.

Sinkholes, which are common in Florida, are caused by water erosion.

Mar-a-Lago has quickly become known as the “Winter White House.” Trump himself has also referred to it as his “Southern White House,” as he spent several consecutive weekends there during his time in office. [Palm Beach Daily News] – Katherine Kallergis
