Napa Earthquake

NAPA, Calif. (AP) — A powerful earthquake that struck the heart of California's wine country early Sunday woke up many people with dressers, mirrors and pictures crashing down around them.
Scores were injured as the temblor knocked out power to thousands, caused gas and water lines to rupture and sparked fires around the city of Napa.
Queen of the Valley Medical Center in Napa reported treating 172 people in the emergency room. Twelve people were admitted, including an adult who remained in critical condition Sunday night.
Officials are still assessing damage from the quake in hopes of getting a cost estimate they could submit for possible federal assistance. But the initial assessment found that dozens of homes and buildings in the region were unsafe to occupy.
The magnitude 6.0-quake was felt widely throughout the region, with people reporting feeling it more than 200 miles south of Napa and as far east as the Nevada border.
