Quake in California’s wine country injures dozens

California Earthquake

NAPA, Calif. (AP) — Napa city officials say that 208 people were treated at the city’s Queen of the Valley Hospital following a 6.0 earthquake Sunday morning in Northern California wine country.

Hospital officials could not say how many of the victims were there for injuries suffered in the quake and how many for more routine injuries and illnesses.

A dozen people were admitted for broken bones and other medical problems directly related to the earthquake.

A 13-year-old was listed in serious condition at the University of California, Davis, Medical Center. He was hit by flying debris from a collapsed fireplace.

Pacific Gas and Electric said there were about 150 customers without power as of Monday morning. The utility said it expects to continue searching for possible gas leaks over the coming days.
