White House sinkhole engulfs DC Twitter feeds

The National Park Service says a small sinkhole opened on White House North Lawn

Reporters have filled Twitter feeds with jokes and puns about the small sinkhole that formed on the White House North Lawn near the briefing room entrance.

To prevent any incidents, White House groundskeepers covered the sinkhole with a wooden board and sectioned it off with traffic cones and police tape.

The National Park Service will conduct further assessments of the sinkhole over the next five to ten days.
