Remembering the Napa Earthquake
Last August, we wrote a blog about the earthquake that happened in Napa the crumbled the facades of many historic buildings. Today we look back to see how far we’ve come since the 6.0-magnitude earthquake that struck at 3:20 am on Aug. 24, 2014. There will be a commemorative event today in Napa at Veterans park starting at 3:20 pm with speakers, music, and emergency preparedness information. For us in San Francisco, the San Francisco Department of Emergency Management reminds you that gathering your emergency supplies and updating your plans on the anniversary of an event like the Napa Earthquake is a great way to show your support for the people injured and killed during this tragic event.
“Napa Strong 6.0/365” will take place at Veterans Memorial Park in downtown Napa. The event, coordinated by the City of Napa, Napa County and the Napa Valley Unified School District will focus on progress in recovery from the quake and preparation for future emergencies.
