The steel support column in the center of the basement is visibly bent. A screw jack was installed to support a sagging section of floor (near refrigerator)
No other evidence of any sagging, or other damage due to shifting was noted anywhere on the interior, exterior, or on the foundation wall.

Any opinions on the cause and severity of the problem? I am particularly perplexed by what would bend a steel column but not show up elsewhere.
Thanks for your thoughts!
