2 Years later- a look back at the Napa quake

- Wednesday marks two years since a 6.0 magnitude earthquake rattled the wine town of Napa at 3:20 a.m. on Aug. 24, 2014.

It killed one person and injured 200 as bricks and furniture - and wine bottles - toppled onto sleeping families.

The quake caused more than $300 Million dollars in damage to wine country.

Old buildings stood up, but the masonry falling off their facade could have hurt more people, if the quake had hit during the day.

Last year, the city and county of Napa will commemorated the first anniversary of the earthquake with a ceremony and event at Veterans Memorial Park.

This year the mayor tells KTVU there is no official event. The city has rebounded and is focusing on moving forward.
