NAPA-

When a 6.1 magnitude earthquake hit in Napa County Sunday morning, the shaking caused power poles to topple and more than 70,000 homes and businesses were without power in just Napa and Sonoma Counties.

PG&E reports by 2 p.m. Sunday, they had restored power to customers in Sonoma County. There are still about 17,000 homes without power in Napa.

Those remaining without power are expected to be back up and running by the end of Sunday.

Sunday’s earthquake also broke dozens of water mains and gas lines. At a Noon press conference, city officials said they were responding to all calls.
