There's live video now from CNN and Washington's NBC-4 as work begins to have engineers rappel down the sides of the Washington Monument to inspect for damage from the Aug. 23 earthquake that shook much of the eastern U.S.
As we reported earlier, the monument suffered considerable damage — and scared the wits out of the vistors and staff who were inside — when the 5.8 magnitude temblor struck. You can see videos of the dramatic moments inside the observation area at the top of the monument here.
It's expected to take several days for engineers to complete the inspection. Bad weather may interfere: Rain and possibly thunderstorms are in the forecasts through Thursday.
The monument remains closed.
