It may have been, but the quake would certainly speed up the process on Virginia's masonry strictures that are the exact type of structures that are most effected by earthquakes.

I really hope they might be able to save some of the bricks or structure to re-cycle/re-use in the future --if/when they rebuild. I really like the trend of using something old in new construction.
