Re: 8-24 quake at napa

I've not heard and I'm worried as the quake was pretty much centered right near the marina.

It did not wake me up and I was only 18 miles from the epicenter though on the boat.

Odds are the power is out there. Heard highway 121 was just reopened an hour ago after caltrans checked the roads/ bridges.

Re: 8-24 quake at napa

News I read said PG&E said at first power was out to 30,000, but within the first hour after has got it restored to 10,000 (approx.) The quake was reported as a Richter 6.

Sailorchic, interesting it didn't wake you. We were on a mooring in Pt. Vila, Vanuatu when a quake struck and we heard this huge bang, the rigging shook, and looking out, dust was rising all over town.

Things will "normalize" soon, all the damages I read of were normal stuff, nothing unusual.

Re: 8-24 quake at napa

Sailorchic, still no news re: marina. But CalTrans reports only minor damage to highways and bridges. And really good news, the water supply at Napa is still safe.

Re: 8-24 quake at napa

I bought my 1977 Peterson 34 back in February. The plan was to haul her out AT Napa ASAP!!

Over the last few months I've been out a few times to deal with almost Criminal bull from the previous owner twice (once to finally get the title!).

However I always did a few jobs on her while I was there. This last was exhaust and scrubbed the bottom with a pole brush. Eventually deciding she will need hauling after a Re-rig and deck work. Maybe some interior too. In the end a haul isn't needed until I'm ready to cruise it away.

So on July 2nd, I was out motoring around for my first time. (WOO HOO!!!) When I decided to keep her wet.

ANYWAY,..I've been feeling like MAYBE I dodged a bullet here! Still extremely curious about the Marina though. It's been at the forefront of my mind every time I hear the words Earthquake in Napa.

I hope we get an answer OP. When you do hear something report back please.

Per this news report, a few boats slipped off their stands, but there was no damage.
Considering the marina was the epicenter of the quake, that's pretty amazing.

According to the Marina's management, only a few herring boats fell off their stands. The office and store are a mess, but the marina is mostly ok.

if you google: sfgate "napa valley marina", there is a story about the marina being the epicenter of the earthquake.

Re: 8-24 quake at napa

Why not call the marina directly?

Re: 8-24 quake at napa

Sounds like all the boats were fine at the marina. The direction of force was north south and I was more south west of the marina, toward the central bay. There are lots of faults around here. That one is a minor one.

I never go more then a week or so without topping off my water tanks.

I use to work in downtown Napa for a few years, designing wineries. The engineering office had it's own wine, but then everyone does there. A nice little town.
