D.C. Earthquake: National Cathedral cleans up

A spokesman for the National Cathedral said that the damage from last week's earthquake will cost millions to fix.


The 5.8-magnitude earthquake that hit the East Coast on Aug. 23 caused three of the four spires of the cathedral's central tower to break off, sending stonework crashing into the building's roof. Major cracks also appeared in some of the flying buttresses.
