Share it ...



Eight years ago, a magnitude 5.8 earthquake hit the US state of Virginia, southwest of Washington, DC.
It shook the American capital so strongly that it cracked the Washington Monument and caused $20m of damage to the National Cathedral.
Today, stonemasons are still repairing the Gothic stonework the earthquake shook loose.
