The 6.0 magnitude earthquake that struck Napa County early Sunday morning could be felt for miles.

Staff at the Six Flags Discovery Kingdom park are inspecting the grounds and rides to make sure there was no damage. A statement from the park said the animals all checked out to be fine, and the park would open as scheduled.

Bay Area media reports suggest dozens of injuries, and at least three people in critical condition from falling debris.

Meanwhile, in Sacramento, the city police department reported a “burst” of calls to 911 when shaking was felt. Some officers felt tremors, but there were no other earthquake-related issues.

The San Francisco 49ers game was set to go on as scheduled, though train service along the Altamont Corridor Express to Levi’s Stadium was canceled for crews to examine the lines and look for damage. According to ACE, 557 customers had booked tickets and will be issued refunds.
