On Tuesday, White House reporters tweeted photos of a big sinkhole that developed on the North Lawn. While a sinkhole at the White House may seem unusual, sinkholes are actually fairly common. The events that take place before a sinkhole appears are usually very subtle which is why they go unnoticed. These caverns in the ground are carved out by water in the ground, sometimes from heavy rains. Sinkholes happen throughout the world but are more common in places where the ground is made of soft rocks like limestone. About 18% of the United States sits atop this type of ground.
