SANTA ROSA (CBS SF) — A 3.4 magnitude quake rumbled near Calistoga Saturday morning and was felt across California’s Wine Country.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake struck at 7:13 a.m. with a epicenter near St. Helena Road in the coastal mountain range between Santa Rosa and St. Helena. It was at the southern end of the Maacama Fault Zone.
The quake was widely felt in Santa Rosa, Calistoga and St. Helena, but was not large enough to do any damage.

Wondering how cats get away with stuff most likely. Pandemic has got all stir crazy, Right?! #earthquake #California #SantaRosa pic.twitter.com/pxKDy6cNyb
