Scenes from the August 24, 2014 Napa Valley 6.0 Earthquake

26 Aug

Yes, we were rudely awakened at 3:30 am here in Berkeley by the magnitude 6.0 earthquake centered in nearby Napa, California, and although our house rocked and rolled for about 20 seconds we suffered no real damage compared to communities 30 miles north where over a hundred people were injured and many, many buildings and homes were severely damaged. Here’s video raw footage ( mainly without narration) that shows not just the building damage experience in Napa but also, importantly, the scene in the local hospital parking lot as they prepare to receive casualties. More news and updates later once things settle down (pun intended)
