Sinkhole forms in front of Mar-a-Lago

PALM BEACH, Fla. (WSVN) — Repair crews are working to clear an area in front of Mar-a-Lago where a sinkhole appeared.

The Town of Palm Beach posted an alert on their website and said the four-by-four sinkhole formed on Southern Boulevard, which is directly in front of Mar-a-Lago.

The sinkhole was spotted just west of one of the entrances to President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.

Palm Beach officials said the sinkhole developed near a newly-installed water main and isn’t a threat to the president’s property.

Officials have shut down one lane of traffic on Southern Boulevard.

Town officials urge drivers to pay close attention to road signs as the repair time remains unclear.

Trump has spent seven weekends at Mar-a-Lago since taking office, but it is now closed for the summer.
