Quake Map of
The San Francisco Bay Area’s strongest quake in 25 years caused about $1 billion in damage when it struck the southern Napa Valley well before dawn on Aug. 24.

The quake caused extensive damage to some casks and bottles of wine near the epicenter, just south of the city of Napa.

Power was knocked out across parts of the Wine Country after the 6.0 magnitude quake struck at 3:20 a.m. local time.

Some residents reported flashes in the sky, similar to lightning, as the quake occurred.
