Northern California was shaken early Sunday morning during the area’s strongest earthquake in 25 years. The earthquake began rumbling around 3:20 a.m. in the South Napa area, waking many from their sleep.
So far, the NoCal Earthquake has injured over 150 people in a short period of time. Historic buildings and roads buckled, and items fell forcefully on residents. Fires flared in the surrounding areas, and over 70,000 people were without power in Sonoma and Napa Valley.
Although the quake only lasted a few seconds, it has caused major issues. The amount of damage is high, but the cost for the repairs is even higher. It is estimated that the natural disaster could cost the area up to $1 billion.
