The tallest and most visible structure in Alexandria, Virginia, the George Washington Masonic National Memorial appears to be unscathed by yesterday's, August 23rd, earthquake. Pictures were knocked off the walls and some exhibits suffered minor damage. Engineers will be inspecting the entire building in the immediate future.
Nobody was injured either within the Memorial or on the grounds.
The Memorial remains open to the public for tours on the regular schedule.
No word yet as to the condition of the Scottish Rite House of the Temple in Washington, which is undergoing major structural renovation.
Unfortunately major cracks have been discovered in the Washington Monument's exterior stones, including one major displacement in the upper pyramidion.
