National Cathedral repairs: $15 million

The Washington Post reports that repairs to the earthquake damaged National Cathedral will run to $15 million.

Officials plan to reopen Washington National Cathedral on Nov. 12, but they also said Tuesday that much work remains to repair the damage caused by last summer’s earthquake.

The cathedral needs to raise at least $15 million for initial repairs to the earthquake-damaged edifice, the officials said, and the chief stone mason there believes overall repairs could take a decade to complete.
