Stay safe!

I was watching the news and a lady was talking on the phone when one of the aftershocks hit.
Sounds like there is a good amount of damage!

oddly i think is was in the 80's there was a huge earthquake in LA and basicly everything fell down, highways, houses, everything but his house stayed up.

Because the house is so old even though its in a VERY expensive area he has to pay zero house tax, next door there are multimillion dollar houses with HUGE yearly taxes but because his house is so old he pays litterally nothing which is pretty cool.

So im not all that surprised he managed to survive

Vanessa DeGier, spokeswoman for Queen of the Valley hospital in Napa, says the facility has treated more than 70 people, most for cuts, bumps and bruises. She says the facility has treated a hip fracture and heart attack, but it's unclear if it was related to the 6.0-magnitude earthquake. The hospital has set up a triage tent and many people are still coming in, DeGier said.

Wow, not a lot of chatter elsewhere about this one. I guess chalk it up to Sunday morning distractions?

Hope our members in the area are ok

What is going HAM?

I see a lot of people on twitter and the news describe it as bucking. The loma prieta was more of a rolling (shaking back and forth due to a rolling motion is how I would describe). These things are just too unpredictable, and while all bigger ones cause damage there are obviously differences in how the faults break/move/whatever. Until they know the exact behavior of the fault underneath it's impossible to know what to expect.

Relieved to hear no serious injuries or deaths.

It looks like a lot of old buildings in NAPA were damaged. Since these were built, building codes have been put into place for more earthquake proof structures (able to move with the quakes). I sort of hope they let them keep the integrity when they rebuild since these places are historic. A way to use brick safely? I hope they find one. If not - safe(r) is better than historic so some of these will be gone for good.

My brother in law lives in Fairfield. A suburb of SFO. We haven't called them yet. Do you know if it's nearby the epicenter ? We're going to call in a bit. It's about 8 AM there. A bit early for a Sunday morning call. Especially if they got woken up in the middle of the night. a reply to: BuzzCory

Santa Monica is hundreds of miles away from the SFO area. They are fine I'm sure. a reply to: Biigs

SFO is basically landfill in the bay. Severe shaking causes liquification. That's why quakes in that area can be so destructive.a In 1906 the land liquefied and wood frame houses just disintegrated.

Sacramento checking in, slept through any shaking that could be felt. Sacramento's about 60 miles away from Napa.

Fortunately this happened when most people were in the comfort of their homes with family, where as the Loma Prieta quake happened around 5:00pm, people were out and about in various structures and seperated from family members.

Non the less a very sad Sunday morning for many in the Bay Area.

No worries for Santa Monica, I am 40 min from there and 8 hrs away from where this quake was. We are So Cali this quake was Northern Cali. With that Being said So Cali is well over due for a huge shaker.

That was North Ridge. In the same general area. North of LA by a good bit. That was bad and it was an 8 something. reply to: Biigs

It hit at 3:20 am out here, woke me right up. It was a long one.

The loma prieta quake back in 1989 was during the day, so experiencing this one during the wee hours of the night was different.

It felt like my bed was rolling down a hill. Very strange waking up to that. Earthquakes out here are usually much shorter, or at least since 1989.
