Napa Area Picks up Pieces after Destructive Quake

The clock inside of the First Presbyterian Church in Napa is stuck just minutes after 3:20, the time a magnitude 6.1 earthquake struck the area Sunday morning.

Windows from the church, which was built in 1874, now lay shattered on the ground.

The historic post office is surrounded by yellow caution tape as it sways and shifts.

Jean Meehan has been cleaning up her business, JHM Stamps, since early in the morning. She said Sunday's quake was much different than the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake.

"'89, I barely felt it," she said, standing among debris and knocked over shelves. "This was the worst, so far."
