When U.S. President Donald J. Trump announced plans to “drain the swamp” It is believed that perhaps God or some other force-may have had similar goals in mind. Reason being is that a growing sinkhole appeared on the White House’s North Lawn this week. Cordoned off with caution tape and two measly cones the hole appears to be just outside the office of press secretary Hogan Gidley.
The National Park Service (NPS), which oversees the grounds, told USA Today it is monitoring the situation and plans to bring in experts.
“Sinkholes, like this one, (pictured, above) are common occurrences in the Washington area following heavy rain like the DC metro area has experienced in the last week,” NPS spokeswoman Jenny Anzelmo-Sarles told the publication in an email. “We do not believe it (sinkhole) poses any risk to the White House or is representative of a larger problem.”
For the record one of the last major sinkhole occurred on Mar 12, 2013 -when Residents were evacuated and cars were relocated after a sinkhole opened up on a sidewalk in front of a building block in Northwest Washington D.C. Initial reports said the hole located at the 1900 block of Biltmore Street NW was about 25 feet deep..
