PALM BEACH, Fla. – A sinkhole formed Monday morning outside President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach.

The 4-foot-long-by-4-foot-wide sinkhole formed on Southern Boulevard outside the entrance to the private resort.

According to an alert from the town of Palm Beach, the sinkhole appears to be in the vicinity of a newly installed water main.

The town said West Palm Beach utilities crews have secured the area and will likely need to excavate.
