    I used to live there! glad I was not there for this! I hope that the people I know there are ok and will be alright as well that they did not get much damage.

    • ??!!!!

      yea hope the people you know are ok who cares about anyone else!!

  • CTJPMarie

    Glad everyone survived…So sorry about the clean up and mess :( and the wine of course. Swift recovery for all!

  • Lindsey Watson

    So thankful that everyone survived !
    This is a clear reminder that there always is the BIG ONE just around the corner and we don’t know when or where it is going to strike!

    We have to be prepared and make sure to keep an earthquake kit in our home, car, and office. Water, Food, Good Shoes, and several hundred dollars cash are essential. I put together my own kit years ago that I update once a year, throwing out expired items. If you don’t want to build a kit yourself, I recommend checking out this company Preppi.

    http://www.preppi.co

    They make awesome earthquake kits that look as good as they are functional with everything you need for 72-hours after a quake! Everyone please keep safe !!!

      The link made me laugh… a joke, I’m guessing? A survival kit focused as much on design as functionality? I hope that if I ever need to break into a survival kit, that my the beautifully designed bag containing my pro-bar organic rations and Kusmi tea will bring me comfort! ;-)

    Thanks. Am so thankful you all are ok. Things can be replaced, but people cannot be!

  • Leffle

    I would like to thank the city of Napa for taking great care of all works that helped the water agencies that pulled together to help the city get up and running again. I was one of the workers that was lucky to help restore water service to those people that where out of water. I would like to say water is very important and the crews work very hard this last week to put everyone back into service. GREAT JOB TO THE WATER PRO’S.
