Breaking News: Napa Earthquake; Lodge Lightning Complex Fire

Napa earthquake (Updated at 8:50am Wednesday August 27): According to the USGS, an earthquake and several aftershocks were recorded Sunday morning. The original quake at 3:20am Sunday morning was measured at 6.0 and was centered near American Canyon. Three aftershocks were recorded near Napa: at 5:01am (2.5), at 5:47am (3.6), and 7:22am (2.5); two more near American Canyon at 7:54am (2.8), and 10:38am (2.6).  Additional aftershocks were reported by USGS in the area on Tuesday, including a 3.9 shake at 5:33am. Sunday's quake was the strongest in the Bay Area since the 6.9 Loma Prieta quake (October 17, 1989).

KQED reports the following information:
• Napa’s Queen of the Valley Hospital reports treating 209 people between the time the earthquake struck at 3:20 a.m. and 11 p.m. Sunday. The hospital says a total of 17 people were admitted, most in fair to serious condition. One person remains in critical condition. Vallejo is reporting 49 minor injuries.
• Napa officials say the list of badly damaged buildings in the city has grown dramatically as inspectors continue the long, slow process of assessing structures in the wake of Sunday’s earthquake. The city said at a Tuesday afternoon press conference that it expects to have red-tagged 120 structures by the end of the day. That means they’re unsafe to enter pending further assessment or repairs. Another 500 have been yellow-tagged, meaning that while premises may be entered, they’re unfit for occupancy. 
• The Napa Fire Department reported Monday it responded to 50 fires after the quake, including one in a mobile home park that destroyed four units and damaged several others. Fire officials said an initial lack of water due to water-main breaks led to some of the destruction.
Additional detailed information can be found at KQED's website: KQED reports.

The Napa Valley Register reports that "after two days of earthquake cleanup and inspection, public schools in Napa, American Canyon and Yountville will reopen on Wednesday."
Additional detailed information can be found at The Napa Valley Register's website.

Lodge Fire: Crews continue to monitor and work hot spots and lingering fires within the perimeter of the Lodge Fire site. At last report the fire had consumed 12,535 acres and was 96% contained. Some smoke can be detected in the Leggett Laytonville, Ukiah and adjacent areas.

After a high speed chase, where the passenger fired a handgun at a Mendocino Sheriff's Deputy's car, police are seeking  Christopher Skaggs,30, from Redwood Valley, and Walter Miller (33-,Ukiah,) as persons of interest in this incident.


The public should consider them to be possibly armed and dangerous.


Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Skaggs and Miller are urged to contact the Sheriff's Office at 463-4086 or the Tip-Line at 234-2100.



 

 

 

 

 



 

About 30 Protesters against the Willits bypass yesterday stopped Caltrans subcontractors from building a fence — and bulldozing a path through the brush — at a site on East Hill Rd north of Warbler's tree sit . 


Protesters discovered several bird nests in the brush Caltrans had already cleared, and sat in the path of the bulldozer.


CHP OFFICERS were told by protesters they wanted to talk to California Fish & Wildlife. 


A biologist from SHN Consulting, which had done a bird survey in January, came to look at the nests, along with an environmental compliance officer from Caltrans. Both handled and moved the two still intact nests, breaking one of them. When Fish & Wildlife Warden Rusty Boccaleoni arrived, he was also told that witnesses had seen birds flying from the tree.

Caltrans’ compliance officer told the game warden that it appeared to be an old nest.


BOCCALEONI eventually told protesters that JoAnn Dunn, a staff environmental scientist for Fish & Wildlifwould be coming to the  site to look things over.


Dunn later told protesters that Fish & Wildlife would be returning to do a more complete survey, which would take a few days. 


Naomi Wagner provides an update for Tuesday when two protesters once again stopped CalTrans construction.


 

The Ukiah Planning Commission will hold a public hearing Wednesday on the draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for a proposed Costco store at 6 p.m. in the council chambers at 300 Seminary Avenue.

According to the staff report, David Babcock and Associates applied  for the construction of a Costco warehouse store and fuel station at the south end of Airport Park Boulevard on 15.33 acres, located between the Ken Fowler Auto Center and the southern end of Airport Park Blvd.

The warehouse store would be a maximum of 148,000 square feet and include a bakery, pharmacy, optical center, food court and tire center. The tire center is 5,692-square-foot, building that includes a tire installation facility.

The EIR identified The Significant and Unavoidable impacts, those which "cannot be eliminated or reduced to a less than significant level," as "air quality, transportation and traffic and global climate change."


 

 

 

 

This Thursday, the Ocean Protection Coalition invites the public to a discussion of the proposed expansion of the Gulf of the Farallones/Cordell Bank Marine Sanctuary, at 7 p.m. February 28 at the Fort Bragg 

Library Community Meeting Room, 499 E. Laurel St.  


We will finalize our letter of recommendation for submission the following day, March 1st.

The Marine Sanctuary expansion offers permanent protection from offshore oil drilling and other polluting activities to just north of Point Arena. For information, contact David Gurney at 961-1339.
