6.0-Magnitude Earthquake Rocks Northern California, Injuring Nearly 100
Early Sunday, a 6.0 magnitude earthquake shook Northern California’s wine country near Napa, Sonoma and Santa Rosa. At least 90 people were injured and many homes have burned down after the earthquake triggered six major fires. At least 30 water mains have broken or started leaking and there have been reports of many gas leaks and downed power lines, leaving many people without electricity or gas. Historic buildings in Napa have been extensively damaged in what is the strongest quake to hit the Bay Area since 1989.
