YOUNTVILLE (CBS SF) — A 3.7 magnitude earthquake early Sunday morning, rumbled through Northern California’s Wine Country, jolting local residents from their beds but causing little damage and no injuries.
The U.S. Geological Survey reported the quake hit at 1:55 a.m. and was centered 4 miles south-southwest of Yountville, west of Dry Creek Road, near the West Napa Fault line — the epicenter of the 6.1 2014 quake that caused wide spread damage, one death and 200 injuries.
The quake was most strongly felt in Napa and Sonoma. For many it flashed them back to the early morning 2014 quake.
The Goodman Library, Napa County Courthouse Plaza, Downtown Post Office, Alexandria Hotel, and and First Presbyterian Church in Napa all suffered moderate to extensive damage in the 2014 quake.
On Sunday morning, local residents took to social media to report their experiences this time around.
Shirley Carlton Jansen told to KPIX 5’s Facebook page to say she was jolted awake.
“Yes I did! It woke me from a dead sleep on east side of Sonoma,” she posted.
