Washington National Cathedral earthquake damage to be displayed
WASHINGTON (AP) — Visitors to the Washington National Cathedral will soon get a close-up look at some of the damage caused by an August earthquake.
The cathedral is putting the finishing touches on an exhibit documenting the damage and the repair process.
Stonework fell off the cathedral's towers and parts of the building were severely cracked during the 5.8-magnitude quake that shook the nation's capital on Aug. 23.
The exhibit will include some of the damaged stones and a slideshow documenting the restoration effort. It will open to the public next week following a media preview Friday.
The cathedral will celebrate its reopening on Saturday by installing a new bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington. Its first public worship service since the quake will be held the next day.
