Earthquake Damage to National Cathedral to Cost at Least $15 Million

Earthquake damage to Washington National Cathedral has been estimated to cost $25 million and ultimately could take a decade to repair, The Washington Post reported on Tuesday.

The cathedral was damaged in the Aug. 23 earthquake when many of the building's pinnacles collapsed. A number of finials also fell from their foundations. Stones from the cathedral reportedly littered the campus. Adding to the cathedral's bad luck: A crane that was repairing the damage to the edifice was blown over in a storm last month.

Initial repairs are estimated to cost at least $15 million, with an additional $10 million required to pay for cathedral operations through 2012.

 

Despite all the damage, the cathedral is set to reopen to the public on Nov. 12.
