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."

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.

Legislation introduced today in Washington D-C aims to take corporate money out of politics and give the power back to the people. The “We the People Amendment” seeks to overturn “Citizens United,” the U-S Supreme Court ruling that allows corporations to make independent political expenditures. Ben Manski with the group “Move to Amend” says his organization's view is that rights recognized under the Constitution belong only to people.

The Fort Bragg Community Federal Credit Union and Mendo Lake Credit Union have signed a memorandum of understanding to consider a merger, officials said Friday.

They believe that, in the current financial environment, a larger but still moderately sized local institution will be better positioned to provide a higher level of ongoing service.  

Should the merger be finalized, the combined organization would be more than $160 million in total assets and serve more than 23,000 members.  

Out of that total, the proposed combined Fort Bragg branch of MLCU will have more than $50 million in deposits, more than $26 million in loans and will serve more than 7,000 members.  

The proposed merger will provide FB members a range of new and expanded servicesAs the merging credit union, FB members will be given an opportunity to vote on the final merger agreement, with a full disclosure of all details provided prior to the vote.

Teachers and staff in the Willits School District may face layoffs next year as the school board attempts the difficult task of closing a $750,000 budget shortfall.

During its regular meeting last week, the board approved a preliminary round of budget reductions that included the potential layoffs of as many as 10 teachers and an unspecified number of staff.

Declining enrollment and declining revenues has forced the district into deficit spending since 2007.

 

 

 

The 2012 grape crush in California totaled 4,383,100 tons, a record  over 2011.

Chuck Morse, agricultural commissioner for Mendocino County, said that two important numbers were up significantly for Mendocino County: the prices per ton and the volume of grapes.

For red wine grapes, the prices per ton were up 14 percent from 2011, while for white wine grapes the prices went up 19 percent, Morse said.

The volume increases were even higher. For reds, the increase was 20 percent, and for whites, it was 27 percent.

However, Morse said the increases were so dramatic in part because 2011 was such a bad year.

The weather forecasts for this year, though, don't look as perfect.

"It looks a little trickier this year," McGourty said, adding that 2013 may be cooler and get less rain.

But even if the good weather repeated, he said "the chances of having two great crops in a row are remote. The vines get tired, the carbohydrates get depleted, so it takes a while for them to recover."
