As earthquake anniversary nears, damage remains at National Cathedral


WASHINGTON, D.C. (WTVR) – Thursday will mark one year since the historic 5.8-magnitude earthquake rattled Central Virginia and parts of the Northeast.

Signs of damage from the quake are still visible on landmarks in Washington, D.C., including the National Cathedral. Pinnacles buttresses and gargoyles remain cracked and damaged.

The cathedral has launched a fundraising campaign to pay for repairs called “Restore the Glory.”

The cathedral hopes to raise $100,000 by midnight on Aug. 23, the anniversary of the quake, to continue restoration  efforts.
