Washington (CNN) - The Washington Monument remained closed Wednesday as engineers studied ways to repair cracks at the top of the capital's iconic structure - one day after a rare 5.8-magnitude East Coast earthquake.
Washington's National Cathedral also remained closed after sustaining what its staff described as "substantial damage," including numerous cracks in the building's limestone blocks and broken pinnacles on its towers.
Looking for infrastructure projects? Here you go!
Global Warming is creating these natural catastrophes, learn, Please do not cut big long trees. White-house, and Congress, do not let these idiots like lobbyists for building, and cutting trees. We need vegetation in this nation. Keep America Beautiful, Keep forests, and wildlife....God bless. Listen, when earth is too hot, these things happen. God is telling us something, respect it and pray for it.....
Global Warming is creating these natural catastrophes...
I don't think so. Cash-For-Clunkers solved global warming last year.
"Looking for infrastructure projects? Here you go!"
Infrascructure? It's a MONUMENT for crying out loud.
Gotta tell you it was quite something here in Maryland!
My marble topped desk shook quite violently here at work; you saw buildings down the street undulating.
The quake that we experienced on July 16th, 2010 was a 3.8 magnitude. We joked about that one. This one was a 5.9 (some say 6.0). Nothing to joke about.
Damage to the National Cathedral has been reported. Asessments are being made today to many other locations.
The thrill is gone.
Global Warming is creating these natural catastrophes,
I didn't know earthquakes just started happening since we started using oil. Honestly... how absurd.
I can't believe Obama and the Democrats didn't blame the earth quake on the Tea Party and/or the Republicans. They are slipping.
NEWS FLASH: Obama to address the nation at 8pm tonight on earthquake and approaching hurricane
Why not? Obama hasn't been in front of a camera in a day or two. He must be experiencing symptoms of withdrawal.
Thanks god that nothing bad happened. It might be a warning that its time to think deeply on infrastructure. The bad memories of levees in New Orleans have not vanished!
