The earthquake that hit Sunday morning near Napa will not impact the 49ers game scheduled to start at 1 p.m., but it may effect how fans get to Levi’s Stadium.

Train tracks within about 100 miles of the earthquake’s epicenter of American Canyon, are being examined for safety.

The Altamont Corridor Express, which runs from Stockton to Santa Clara, has canceled their train Sunday.

Trains from Roseville, Sacramento and cities along the Capital City Corridor were also cancelled Sunday morning.

Although there are no initial concerns about the railroad tracks, Union Pacific is inspecting them to be cautious.

FOX40 heard from riders who were given a refund on their train ticket after the cancellation.

The San Francisco 49ers released a statement Sunday morning:

“We would like to extend our best wishes to all of our neighbors, family and friends affected by this morning’s earthquake.

Levi’s® Stadium was designed to meet California seismic code requirements and seismic bracing was incorporated into the design and construction. Building engineers have walked the entire stadium and we have had no reported damage. We will continue to do so throughout the day.”

Sunday’s 49ers game will air on FOX40 at 1 p.m.
