Early Sunday, the Northern California city of Napa was hit by a 6.0 earthquake, the largest in the region since 1989's destructive Loma Prieta quake. In the intervening years, many earthquake precautions have been taken, but there's one thing you can't do: glue library books to shelves.
And so, when a library experiences a 6.0 temblor, as the Napa Public Library did, this is what happens: A big mess. Books are thrown to the floor in huge heaps.
All Napa County libraries are closed Monday for cleanup.
The region has experienced more than 65 aftershocks, with two that were more than magnitude 3.0. In 2000, a magnitude 5.2 earthquake shook Napa.
Power has been restored to almost all of the 70,000 residents who lost it on Sunday, and cleanup is underway across the area. Because of breaks in water and gas lines, Napa's director of public works, Jack LaRochelle, says it may take a week for things to get back to normal.
