In Palm Beach, Florida, officials warned drivers to “Please pay attention to signs” on Monday after a 4′ x 4′ sinkhole was discovered on Southern Boulevard, just west of the entrance to President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort.
According to a traffic alert issued by the Town of Palm Beach, the sink hole may have formed in the vicinity of a newly installed water main.
The town closed down a lane of traffic and says that West Palm Beach Utilities distribution crews secured the area to do “some exploratory excavation” Monday.

Unfortunately, Twitter users used the incident as a reason to mock the president, with some even blasphemously suggesting God was responsible for the sinkhole.
