While the 5.9 earthquake was playfully mocked with pictures fallen lounge chairs and askew picture frames, turns out there was some real damage after all.
Located in DC, the Washington Monument suffered a crack at the very top.
It went unnoticed until it was detected by a helicopter.
The monument is closed until further notice. Sorry, tourists!
Well, it sucks one of our major landmarks was damage, but it's still a WAY better situation than we feared!
