D.C. Earthquake Damage, One Year Later--PICTURES

It's been a year since a 5.8 magnitude earthquake centered in Virginia rocked the East Coast. While the devastation wasn't quite has horrendous as some (see: Twitter) made it out to be, the quake did still make a mess of the Washington, D.C., area. One year later, the damage to the National Mall and the National Cathedral still have not been fully repaired.
