Sinkhole opens outside of Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club

A sinkhole opened outside of President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Fla., Monday morning, the town said. 

A 4-foot-by-4-foot hole appeared in front of the golf club by Southern Boulevard, near a newly installed water main, the town of Palm Beach said in an alert. 

West Palm Beach Utilities distribution crews secured the area and is expected to do some "exploratory excavation" at some point of the day. It is unclear if the road was damaged or traffic in the area would be impacted.
