Just an FYI, all statues on the fallen spire were removed four days ago for renovation, and Notre Dame Paris Paris France City shirt of the “treasures” inside was not harmed. Some good news out of an awful accident. The PR fallout will be worse than the lawsuit. Also, a crew that gets to work on something as awesome as the Notre Dame is probably insured to the teeth.

The exterior will certainly be rebuilt, but the priceless art, relics, etc., is likely gone forever. I’m hoping they manage to salvage some of it, but it’s looking grim. They were renovating the building, and I read that they removed some bronze statues for the construction, so I’m hoping they removed other stuff as well.
