September 27, 2010. An engineer begins the process of conducting a block-by-block inspection of the exterior of the Washington Monument while suspended by ropes, Washington, DC. The National Park Service has closed the landmark in the nation's capital indefinitely due to damage caused by a 5.8 magnitude earthquake in August.
