The lingering impact of the 5.8-magnitude earthquake that hit Mineral, Va., on August 23, 2011 can be seen at Louisa High School, where students attend classes in trailers and the football team trains in a makeshift weight room. The Lions missed only one day of practice and one game in the aftermath of the quake and served as a rallying point for the community.
Louisa High School is surrounded by fences, rope and keep out signs. The school building has been closed since August 23, 2011, when a 5.8-magnitude earthquake shook the small town of Mineral. The building is scheduled to be torn down in the coming months, and is expected to be rebuilt by 2015. Tracy A. Woodward/THE WASHINGTON POST Buy Photo
