I second that Barbara! I hope everyone made it through that o.k. It's not enough that they are experiencing a severe drought now they have to deal with an earthquake too. Prayers for the west coast folks!

I slept through it,but I'm estimating that we're 80 or 90 miles away from the epicenter.

May those closest to the quake recover quickly from this. My heart goes out to those who suffered injuries and property damages. Group hug

No damages here, but it sure did wake me up. Instead of the usual jerky shaking quakes we get, this one had a rolling feel to it. It seemed to last a long time and it felt like I was on a boat.

We are about 50 miles away, woke us out of sound sleep. We have friends over there, lots of clean-up going on the next few days. As of last night, repairs were done to 20 of the 60 water main breaks. Gas mains are also being repaired with crews working overtime.

Anyone know if NAPA irises are OK?

They are probably doing cleanup inside like all the other residents. Maybe they will add an update on their site eventually.

I emailed NAPA to ask, received this response today:

We're fine here. We were far enough away from the epicenter to not have
any damage - just a few pictures fell. It certainly woke us up though.
Downtown Napa and some of the wineries suffered quite a bit of damage as
far as we can tell.

Thanks

That's good to know, Thanks Debra for checking on them. Now if our wind has some extra bubbles, we'll know it's been shaken a bit! Hilarious!

I noticed in the news that they are already assuring everyone that it won't raise the price of wine. Hope the wineries are okay with that since they probably have some pricey repairs to deal with.

Here is one expensive repair! (Not my photos,from the news)

This was a winery we had visited in the past, their historic building shifted quite a bit! Blinking

"Owner Janet Trefethen, right, and president Jon Ruel, left, talk about the earthquake damage to the historic winery building, seen in the background, dating from 1886 at Trefethen Family Vineyards Monday, Aug. 25, 2014, in Napa, Calif. The winery is hopeful they can save the building after San Francisco Bay Area's strongest earthquake in 25 years struck the heart of California's wine country early Sunday."

It didn't actually collapse and, from the photograph, the roof line looks intact. Hopeful they can repair.

If it doesn't get braced soon, it may still collapse. There is a major weight shift to that front buckled wall. I bet they are stressed.

Article from yesterday says they have structural engineers assessing whether it can be repaired.

That will be a big job. I hope they can for the historical significance, but it will be tricky to upright without some loss.

I like Trefethen wines.. That's a bummer for them... We play at a couple of wineries, and I get more wine than I can drink. I'm accumulating quite a stash. I still have more Iris though.
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.
