Exterior Crack Force Indefinite Closure of the USS Arizona Memorial

From the May 29, 2018, Smithsonian by Jason Daley.

The USS Arizona Memorial in Hawaii has an estimated 1.8 million visitors a year.  It straddles the ship below it which is in 40 feet of water in Pearl Harbor.

It has been declared no longer structurally sound and will be closed for an undetermined period of time.

On may 6, someone noticed cracks and they were repaired and ferry service resumed.  But the cracks reappeared.
