"severe damage" - which precludes further use of structure, facility, or object for its intended purpose; 2. "moderate damage" - or the degree of damage to principal members, which precludes effective use of the structure, facility, or object for its intended purpose, unless major repairs are made short of complete reconstruction; 3.
