Apple pledges to donate for Notre Dame restorations

Notre Dame Cathedral fire

"You literally can't believe that something like that is happening".

Pope Francis has told his weekly audience at St. Peter's Square of his sadness over the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral, the seat of the Paris archdiocese.

Mr Macron said Notre Dame would be "even more beautiful" after the restoration, however experts said the staggering amount of cash flung at rebuilding efforts might not be enough to replace what was lost.

A spokesperson said tour groups will probably still want to have a look at the cathedral, although French officials are not allowing any members of the public to get too close.

"The cathedral ruins are still one of the more popular tourist destinations an Winnipeg and Manitoba".

Taken aback by what she saw, Lesley Rowan shared a picture of the fire on Facebook and asked others if they saw what she saw.

Nations expressed solidarity with France after the fire at the Notre Dame Cathedral and offered their support for the recovery.Monday's fire collapsed the spire and burned through the roof of the 12th-century building, sparking an outpouring of grief and reminiscing of visits to the Parisian landmark.

Some cathedrals use what is called a sniffer system, which is created to detect smoke in the air at an early stage so that people can be evacuated from the building.

Brooke tweeted that she is uncertain about the father and daughter relationship but based on what she could see, she speculated that was the case.

"Notre Dame is one of the world's great treasures, and we're thinking of the people of France in your time of grief", Obama said.

Wolff has always been clear that his drivers are free to race as long as it is not at the cost of the team's overall result. He was later given the all-clear, but missed qualifying because his ruined vehicle could not be fixed in time.

The Friends of Notre Dame, a society founded to foster the preservation of the cathedral, has held concerns about the building's structural integrity for a long time. The current building was constructed within the still-standing walls of the old cathedral but it isn't almost as grand, in part because the parish didn't have the millions of dollars needed to rebuild, and in part because a decision was made to build a more community-oriented space.

The cathedral's three famed rose windows date to the 13th century.

The promised assistance is a welcome - if late - surprise for the centuries-old Notre Dame, whose condition has been deteriorating for many years while the church and city government bickered over who should pay for much-needed repairs.

Laurent Prades says the high altar, which was installed in 1989, was hit and harmed by the cathedral's spire when it came crashing down in the flames.

"I nearly went up to the dad and asked if he wanted it".

"It was the focal point of the parish", he said.

Officials who entered the charred edifice reported that despite significant damage and some weaknesses, the building's main structure had been saved.

"Our history never stops and that we will always have trials to overcome", he said.

The robot, described as "little" in the French press, had the role of putting out the fire, or at least reducing the temperature in the scorching nave to help the firefighters gain access.
