The top of the Washington Monument is seen in Washington on Aug. 24 as it remains closed after the Aug. 23 earthquake. A day after an earthquake rattled the nation's capital, officials begin assessing the damage to some of the city's oldest, and tallest, cultural landmarks. The monument was closed after a crack was discovered at the top.
