NC building review finds few quake problems


RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- A state review of North Carolina government buildings following the East Coast earthquake has found only a few minor problems that may be attributed to the tremors.

State Department of Administration spokeswoman Jill Lucas said Wednesday only three state structures in the Raleigh area have reported damage - minor cracks inside two buildings and possible damage to a previously closed pedestrian walkway connecting a parking deck and a building. Lucas says building inspectors determined the building cracks were cosmetic.

There have been no reports of damage to state buildings in other parts of the North Carolina.

Gov. Bev Perdue says the review of government buildings was appropriate after Tuesday's earthquake centered in Virginia. Shaking could be felt in North Carolina from the mountains to the coast.
