A strong magnitude 6.0 earthquake rocked the San Francisco Bay Area early Sunday morning, centered in the Napa County town of American Canyon, severely damaging historic buildings in Downtown Napa, rupturing gas lines and water mains across Napa, Sonoma, and Solano Counties leading to multiple fires, plunging entire communities into darkness and buckling and cracking roadways on Highway 37 and State Route 121.

At least 36 aftershocks were recorded following the earthquake, the largest quake to hit the Bay Area since the 6.9 magnitude quake hit Loma Prieta nearly 25 years ago. Initial reports had the earthquake measuring 6.1 magnitude. A significant aftershock of at least magnitude 5.0 is likely in the next seven days, with U.S. Geological Survey scientists forecasting a 54 percent chance. There is a 5 percent chance of another quake greater than 6.0.

I hope nobody was hurt when those old buildings collapsed. People should be extra wary in earthquake prone areas what with aging infratructure; it appears the people in leadership roles are doing nothing to reinforce infrastructure (for public safety) sad2.gif.

It appears the North American plate (a big one) is on the move.

I went to Napa last summer, it's very nice. Most of the wine I buy is from vineyards in Napa / Sonoma.

Biere.
