As I went to sleep on Saturday, I was planning to have you investigate the hurricane and tropical storms in the Pacific. Then on Sunday, I woke up to the earthquake in Napa, Sonoma, and American Canyon up north. Take your choice!
The Napa-American Canyon Earthquake
1) Here are some quotes from Twitter:
“OMG GUYS!!! My 1st #California #earthquake just now!!! Woke up to the bed swaying, the window blinds shaking and dogs barking!!
“Wow. That was either really big or really close!”
“And…Worse earthquake I’ve ever felt.” “I can hear my neighbors outside in pitch black knocking on doors asking ‘Are you ok?’”
2) Here is a link to a news report with video and images about the Napa/American Canyon earthquake: 6.1 from NBC Bay Area News.
3) The USGS has information on the latest earthquakes around the world. Here’s where it occurred:
