Re: Notre Dame cathedral on fire

Absolutely heartbreaking

I know a lot of landmarks have already collapsed etc. and been saved, but apparently, they had a big problems even getting funding for the necessary repairs they were doing now, and had to literally beg for it. They had to beg for funding to preserve Notre Dame. I mean, obviously there will be media and people's pressure on them now to do it, but... it does not fill you with confidence.

Re: Notre Dame cathedral on fire

Heartbreaking. Thankfully, the structure is now safe, the bell towers are saved. Hopefully, the stone structure isn't too damaged. But all the wooden parts are gone. Years of work ahead now.


Incredible scenes in the streets of Paris, with people praying and crying. So touching. Catholic or not. Most of the arts and the treasure were saved.

I imagine the ceiling is partly gone too. And the bells probably fell with the whole structure being wooden.

Never thought we'd witness something like this.

Accident. There was renovation work.

Who cares of hypertrophic weapons when the player on the court moves like music?

Re: Notre Dame cathedral on fire

Nothing suggests an attack right now. The fire began exactly where restoration was going on. Inside the structure.

Re: Notre Dame cathedral on fire

Have been there many times and have some beautiful photos, the stained glass windows were my favourite and arguably the most visually stunning and striking stained glass windows in the world. It is the heart of the Île de la Cité. Heartbroken.

Macron just spoke and announced that the cathedral will be rebuilt. It will be possible to donate starting tomorrow.

I suspect that they'll get the money very quickly from all over the world.

While they previously struggled to find money to restore it.

Re: Notre Dame cathedral on fire

Damn. How dangerous for firefighters to work there with a structure that could collapse at any moment. Thoughts for them.


Looking at this, the interior looks better than I thought it would.

I've just seen your president on TV and he said the landmark will be rebuilt

In the meantime, the media launching an offensive against the US president who suggested that the French firefighters should use helicopters to pour the water from above
