The captions for pictures in this article, like those of the BYU-Utah women's
soccer game, are recycled from one to the next, without much care or concern for
relevancy or accuracy. The photos here are not dated, so one does not know if
they are "before" or "after" shots.I suppose we
can be grateful for pictures, and suffer the cheap unprofessional finished
product evident more frequently at the DN.
to answer Drumboy12 - it is the height of the buildings and the swaying
increasing velocity as the building moves, to kind of cuase a whiplash effect.
The National Cathedral lost several gargoyles of stone that were only recently
finished. I am 2 hours north of the Temple and we felt it shake but we get a
lot of seismic activity on the Pequea Fault just across the Susquehanna River.
We didn't take that much notice until the newscasts. Now for the hurricane!
@Brian SIt may also be helpful to know that parts of the US that
seem "east" to those of us living in the west, are referred to as
"Midwest" by those who live there. Michiganders consider themselves
living in the Midwest. Tradition. Don't take it personally. Remember the east
was settled first and Missouri was considered the wild west. It's more of an
attitude and life-style than a location, from what I observed, when I lived in
@ Brian SBe glad the reports were wrong. I suggest you
research the New Madrid Fault Line in Southern Missouri and see what happened in
the early 1800's (approx 1805 or so). As I recall it went like this:1-
Earthquake Event (according to eye witness reports) caused the Mississippi River
to flow north at St. Louis.2- When it flowed south again, Reel Foot Lake
was formed in Northwestern Tennessee. Look at your atlas; it didn't exist
before the event.3- Bells in church steeples in Boston rang during the
event.4- Loss of life was minimal because the area was very sparsely
populated.5- Outside California and the Rocky Mountains, the New Madrid
Fault has the largest potential for damage and loss of life of any fault in the
United States.So just be glad it truly wasn't an event of any
greater magnitude. My daughter and son-in-law in Delaware were right in the
thick of it and it was a frightening experience. The fact it was felt in
Chicago doesn't diminish its effect in the East one bit. "Tell
your grandchildren" all about it in a few years.
Wow, the temple sure looks different without the tips. We have a lot of photos
of the DC temple and it really is not the same. Glad no one was hurt.
How does an earthquake cause isolated damage to a spire, causing it to break off
the top of the building or bend like that?
BP In SGI think it must be your computer, I've never had any problems
including the 9 they have with this story.
Dear Deseret News:Please make it so we can actually see ALL of the
pictures. For the last several months, when you "Click to Enlarge" or
"See All 9 Photos" it just blows up the 1 picture and the page, but
does NOT display the additional pictures. I can't believe this hasn't been
resolved still. Whether in Sports, or other categories, it is always the same.
Thank you for your consideration.
I heard the White House is saying the earthquake occurred along "Bush's
OK, I want to know why all the photo captions say the earthquake struck the
Midwest and East Coast? It makes it sound like the quake was centered in the
Midwest. The earthquake hit the East Coast and was felt as far away as the
midwest. Outside of the Mid Atlantic area there was no damage. The East Coast
doesn't get enough earthquakes that we want to share it with the Midwest.I mean, when an earthquake hits California they don't say an earth quake
struck the Rocky Mountain region and California, just because it was felt as far
away as Colorado.Just saying...
Good to know the Temple is operational still.
