Recommended Posts

Well this seems like a sign from God.

SALT LAKE CITY — In the aftermath of Wednesday’s 5.7 magnitude earthquake, the Salt Lake Temple suffered some minor damage. 

Most visible was the Angel Moroni’s missing trumpet.

“The Salt Lake Temple, which is undergoing a seismic upgrade, sustained some minor damage during Wednesday morning’s earthquake,” said Daniel Woodruff, a spokesman for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. “The trumpet on the Angel Moroni statue fell off, and there is minor displacement of some of the temple’s smaller spire stones. No workers were injured. Crews on the job site have been sent home for the day, and a full assessment is underway to determine needs going forward. This event emphasizes why this project is so necessary to preserve this historic building and create a safer environment for all our patrons and visitors.”
