The 6.0 magnitude quake six miles southwest of Napa hit at 3:30AM Sunday.


The 30-second earthquake struck just before 3:30am about 10 miles northwest of American Canyon, which is about 6 miles southwest of Napa, in California wine country, Leslie Gordon of the U.S. Geological Survey said.

It’s the largest earthquake to shake the Bay Area since the 6.9 magnitude Loma Prieta quake in 1989, the USGS said…

A bridge in American Canyon was damaged in the earthquake and will be closed, and Napa City Hall has also sustained serious damage.

The earthquake also started several fires, with firefighters battling a blaze that started in a mobile home park in the area.

So far, there have been no reports of injuries.[su_sky_ad]

    The Pacific “ring of fire” remains active. More of the same to follow in the months and years to come. Some bad and some terrible…

    Some of the clowns posting on right wing blogs sites are already claiming it to be an “act of God” against liberal heathens.
