American earthquake measuring 5.2 Richter in the Napa Valley wine country, six-miles northwest of Napa. This is an area where quakes are so rare that it is not even mapped for faults, so was a surprise to residents and geologists alike. Two people were hospitalized by falling debris and there were various cuts from shattered glass. The quake was extremely abrupt with the sudden jerk that characterizes a great deal of physical damage from falling objects. It left a cleanup of millions of dollars in damage, the result of a "strike slip fault," when one huge chunk of land literally slips by another.

The last strong quake to hit this area was on 10/02/1969, 17 miles away in Santa Rosa.
