VALLEJO (CBS SF) — Seven commercial buildings in Vallejo, including the post office at 385 Santa Clara St., have been red-tagged as uninhabitable following Sunday’s 6.0-magnitude earthquake north of American Canyon, city officials said Monday.

Thirty commercial buildings in Vallejo have been yellow-tagged for partial specified use, including clean-up, city officials said.

EXTENDED COVERAGE:

There were 13 water main breaks in the city but water has been restored to all residents.

Some businesses on Mare Island are without water because of internal structural damage.

The Solano County Health and Social Services offices located at 355 and 365 Tuolumne St. are yellow-tagged and closed to the public. County employees will contact clients who had appointments in Vallejo and reschedule or divert them to a Fairfield office.

Georgia Street from Sonoma Boulevard to Marin Street and Indian Alley remain closed until proper assessments of the 400 block are completed.

Nimitz Avenue on Mare Island remains closed between Seventh and Bagley streets remains closed, city officials said.

Residents with brick masonry fireplaces or foundations that pose safety concerns should call 911 to request a fire department inspection.

Non-emergency structural damage issues can be reported to the Emergency Operation Center by calling (707) 648-4423 or emailing Earthquake2014@ci.vallejo.ca.us.

Vallejo residents can follow the city’s post-earthquake status updates on Vallejo’s Facebook and Nextdoor feeds and at www.ci.vallejo.ca.us/EarthquakeStatus.
