The Bay Area just got hit with its largest earthquake in 25 years
A friend in LA told me this afternoon that there had been an earthquake. I have not had on the television to hear about it. Thanks for the report.
At 3:20 a.m. Pacific time on Sunday, an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.0 hit the San Francisco Bay Area.
The USGS reports that it occurred 6.7 miles below the surface, with an epicenter just south of Napa and about 30 miles northeast of San Francisco. This is the strongest earthquake felt by the region in 25 years, since the 1989 Loma Prieta quake, which had a magnitude of 6.9.

There have been no deaths reported so far, but 87 people are being treated for injuries at a Napa hospital, and three are in critical condition — including a child struck by fragments of a collapsing chimney.
There are also numerous damaged buildings and roads in and around Napa, including a damaged highway foundation near the city of Vallejo.
