However, the more I read and see, the more damage seems to be out there. There was the Mt. Rona Missionary Baptist Church at 11th and Monroe had lost some bricks, which didn't seem like a big deal. However, I walked by the other day and they had signs on the doors saying it was off limits no one was allowed inside because it was unsafe.
Houses seem to have issues too: A week or so ago I was at a house party in the neighborhood and noticed that the door was hard to open and close, it was grinding along the floor. I asked somebody and it turned out the place shifted on its foundation a bit, and entire doorframe was bent. A coworker was living in a group house and the landlord recently told them it was condemned due to the earthquake and they had to leave. Pretty crazy stuff.
I also just saw this notice on the Ward One listserve, which talks about damage at the Ella Jo Baker Cooperative, an affordable housing cooperative at 14th and V. They suffered about $15,000 of damage to the building, which caused 3 of the residents to have to move out. They're having a fundraiser for the repairs. Let's hope they get it.
So maybe there really has been a lot of damage, we just didn't hear about it or see it at first. Anyone else notice any damage around the area, or even to your own house or business?
