Quake Cleanup Underway

NAPA, Ca. (NBC News) – Residents and businesses in Napa, California are picking up the pieces after being jolted by the worst earthquake to hit the San Francisco Bay Area in a quarter century.

The 6.0 quake that struck at 3:20 Sunday morning couldn’t have come at a worse time for the region’s $13-billion wine industry, which was already struggling to get through a serious drought and preparing to harvest this year’s grapes.

Most of the 500 or so wineries in Napa Valley reported minor damage, but some lost as much as 50% of their wine inventory.
