Napa Tallies Quake Damage; Students To Return To Classes


People farther north in California in Napa are trying to get back to their routines after an earthquake last weekend. The strongest to hit the region in a quarter century. The school district in Napa has been closed for the past two days, but children are heading back to class this morning.


Now damage from the earthquake could exceed $1 billion we're told. Historic buildings are damaged and the wine industry was affected. But it could've been worse. The Napa-based Wine Institute says that most area wineries are north of the worst affected area and, quote, "seem to have experienced minimal damage and disruption."
