Reporters attending this week's White House press briefings noticed a concerning new feature of the lawn: a sinkhole.

Voice of America's Steve Harman tweeted out this photo of the developing basin on Tuesday.

The sinkhole appears to have been taped off by staff.

According to photos posted by journalists on the premises on Twitter, a green board has been placed over the divot. No plans to fix it have been announced.
