0

NAPA, United States: A 6.0-magnitude earthquake rocked California’s scenic Napa Valley wine country on Sunday (Monday in Manila), the strongest to hit the region in a quarter of a century, seriously injuring three and jolting thousands from their sleep. No deaths were reported, but authorities said a child was in critical condition after being crushed by a fireplace and that some 130 people sought minor medical care and that. Governor Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency in the wake of the 3:20 am quake, which sparked fires, burst water mains, caused gas leaks and even cracked roads.
