Union Station is still cleaning up after the 5.8-magnitude earthquake that hit the D.C. region in August, forcing the station to cancel its annual holiday tree lighting.
It looks like the 5.8-magnitude earthquake that surprised the D.C. region in August isn't done causing problems around the District. Union Station has had to cancel its annual tree-lighting ceremony this year, reports NBC Washington, due to scaffolding and netting still in place for repairs to the station's ceiling.
Union Station began an extensive repair project in October, after the earthquake caused significant damage to the ceiling in the station's main hall.
The large model train display that is installed at the station every year will still be in place.
The tree lighting, which had been scheduled for Dec. 2, is done in connection with the Norwegian Embassy. In a Facebook post, the Embassy says it expect to install the tree and do the event again next year.
