Several Latter-day Saint buildings, including a dozen meetinghouses, were damaged by Wednesday’s earthquake in Utah, but no buildings on Temple Square suffered any structural damage, a church spokesman said in a statement on Thursday evening.
Structural damage did strike the Humanitarian Center and Deseret Manufacturing facility owned and operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, spokesman Daniel Woodruff said.
“The Beehive Clothing manufacturing plant also sustained some damage to the interior of the building,” he said. “All those facilities remain closed until further notice.”
The 12 meetinghouses that sustained structural damage are located in the Magna area.
The church has contractors, consultants and church headquarters staff conducting additional assessments on the closed buildings and damaged meetinghouses.
