A Sinkhole Is Growing on the White House Lawn

Not from The Onion. But is a perfect metaphor.

A Sinkhole Is Growing on the White House Lawn

A sinkhole has formed on the White House and appears to be growing, according to reporters who observed the gap in the grassy ground.

The sinkhole was spotted on the White House's North Lawn, not far from the entrance to the briefing room, according to the Hill. Groundskeepers quickly surrounded the hole with cones and caution tape on Tuesday.

"Washington D.C. received measurable rain eight consecutive days through Saturday," said weather.com meteorologist Chris Dolce. "The total for that period of time was 6.14 inches, which is more than 2 inches greater than the average rainfall for the entire month."

Several White House reporters shared images of the sinkhole on social media.

An Air National Guard cargo plane crashed near Savannah, Ga., on Wednesday morning. At least five people were killed, reports Amy Kiley of member station WABE.

The cargo plane, which is attached to the Puerto Rico Air National Guard's 156th Airlift Wing, was taking part in a training mission, says Capt. Jeff Bezore of the Georgia Air National Guard.

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló said in a statement that the plane crashed shortly after taking off from the airport in Savannah in the course of a routine mission to Arizona.

"We're brothers and sisters, we supported one other in these missions, and so no matter who it is, it hurts us whenever something like this happens," Master Sgt. Roger Parsons of the Georgia Air National Guard said at a news conference Wednesday. "It affects all of us."

This plane took off over my office before nose diving into the ground. I heard and felt the impact. The site is less than a mile from our office and on a normally packed roadway.

The following is a video of the crash, so be warned it is intense.
